  1. ATTENTION: http/https Bug Fix! Most of us have been experiencing problems staying logged in as we navigate the site. That is simply the result of links varying between http and https, which each require different logons. To resolve we are going to force https starting sometime Wednesday. However, you may have problems accessing FerrariChat until after you log out, clear cookies/browser cache, and log back on. Keep in mind my email is admin@ferrarichat.com if you do have access problems after Wednesday. Thanks!

    My favorite is either the P-51 or P-38. From what i've read the P-38 is a lot easier to fly with it's twin engines. I cant even imagine how much the P-51 wants to torque to the left. It's a shame more of them werent preserved after the war. Im also a big fan of the Corsair which i've also read is more than a handful to fly compared to other planes of the era. One of these days I need to get to an airshow to see some of these planes fly. I havent been to one since I was a little kid. I still remember the sounds they made.
    I also think the Hurricane and Spitfire are some nice looking planes. I really dont know much about those planes though.

    Probably P-51, although in my old "Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe" flight sim I liked the ME-262.

    For me, it would definitely have to be the de Havilland Mosquito. But I also have warm spots for the P-51 Mustang, B-26 Marauder, F8F Bearcat, as well as the Spitfire, the B-36, the Yak-3 and the Boeing P-12/F4B.

    If you like the B-36 you should check out the SAC musem out by Omaha. They have a B-36 there puts almost all of the other bombers to shame size wize LOL. I think there is also a pretty interesting book on the B-36 as well.

    That said Fav. Prop bomber would have to be the B-36 or the B-17

    Fighter would be a tougher call. I would have to say either the P-38 or the P-51. Both are really nice planes that I would love to fly if I ever have the chance.

    I have always been impressed with the TU-95 Bear. I believe the largest successful turbo-prop aircraft developed. Very good range with speeds approaching turbo-jet performance from what I have read.

    Oddly, it makes me think of what a B-29 could have evolved into if the jet engine hadn't have been developed when it was.
