    I find this very interesting...The Saab Gripen, designed by BAE and Swedish Saab engineering, is capable of both manned and unmanned flight.
    It was first designed by SAAB, then BAE bought in, if I remember correctly....but this with unmanned flight??

    The Su-27 looks really as as a mean aircraft. But then again, most of the picks deserve the place on the list.
    BTW - the F-14 seem absent from the list???

    The F-14 is absent because it is not really in use anymore. Just the Iranians and its debateable if any are truely airworthy.

    The Cobra certainly is one of the greatest, but just look at it's liniage...

    ...the greatest Helo ever, the UH-1 Huey
