Camel

Buccaneer

Phantom

 - but then I would never restrict my choice to just three as there are just too many great aircraft I could name, and for myriad reasons. So these are just the three that first came to mind after reading the question.

Vickers-Armstrongs VC10

RAF SE5

Avro Anson


Ask me on another day and I'd probably come up with alternative 2nd and 3rd, but the VC10 will always be number 1. A phenomenal aircraft which holds more world records than any other type. :admiration:

I can't believe the Phantom doesn't make it. Ask me again tomorrow. :D

Mosquito*
Lancaster*
Harrier

* Basically, anything with a Merlin engine, the sound of which just reduces me to a wreck

I have to agree with NPN re the Merlin engine. To me that sound is so evocative of WWII aviation.  :thumbsup:

A great program, enjoyed every minute of it.. :thumbsup:

But on another note it's so sad to notice how much our forces and their bases have been depleted by our wonderful politrickians.  The part about Biggin Hill deflated me seeing all those empty derelict buildings from what was once a very active base.

As I recall there were plans to even knock down St Georges RAF Chapel Grade II Listed Building!

Chinnok
Hercules
Tornado GR1 (especially when fully loaded, flaps and slats at mid and taxiing towards you in the early dawn, just looks pure evil  :) )

I wonder what people would choose as their top three RAF aircraft ?

Eurofighter Typhoon
Harrier
Tornado GR4

Thatís my line up! Dunno why they got rid of the harriers!! The yanks are still using theirs and even bought our retired airframes as spares!
