The wooden wonder was a technical masterpiece.

But all out, I'd go for the F-104 or A-5 Vigilante.
But I have a sweet spot for the Mirage 2000 series. (But they drink fuel. Always wondered what a Mirage 2000 with a P&W or GE engine might be like.)

Though it is hard to get any better than this couple. Venezuela and (possibly) Turkey are the only countries I know where destiny's whims may allow for such an improbable combination.

And if we were strict, since we are in the "Modern Military Aircraft" section, the most beautiful (IMO) among the jets in production today:

Didn't think so, at least when I first saw it. Looked boxy to me from some angles. But it grows on you, doesn't it? It's not as mean looking as an F-14, not as pointed as a Mig-25. But from certain viewpoints it looks downright nasty, like directly from behind, head on and when it turns aggressively. I will say this: The production F-22 is MILES better looking than the prototype. Yikes. The production version's clipped wings, re-designed horizontal stabs and slightly smaller vertical stabilizers all look SO much better, along with moving the cockpit further forward.

I do think the SU-57 is up there in the looks department too. Just a shame that the back half of it isn't as good as the first half, aesthetically at least...

The FraudFlanker is indeed a pretty girl, but is exactly like those beauties with awesome face, sexy belly and a way too big bootie...and short legs (small tail fins).

F35C sorta grew on me, i think im a sucker for fifth gen ladies.
