Of course you didn't mess up my day. I did get a ride a couple of weekends ago on this plane.

It is called Sky King, and it dropped the US 82nd Airborne on D-Day. I got to ride in it for about an hour, and I will never forget it. I feel very lucky for that experience.

I love the DO-335. It was the ultimate evolution of piston driven aircraft design (Significantly faster than any allied fighter). Sadly, it became obsolete almost before it was built.

My favorites...

The P-51, the "Cadalac of the Sky."

The Hellcat, the plane with the highest kill ratio of the war.

And the Messerschmidt Me 262, the beginning of a new age in aviation.

Favorite bomber is the B-25. How may other Air Force medium strategic bombers took off from aircraft carriers (even if only once)?

Taking off is the easy part.....When they've landed on one, I'll be impressed!
