Top 100 Warbirds

Flying launches Top 100 Warbirds: Which one is no. 1?

We proudly present Flying Magazine's Top 100 Warbirds, our list of the best, most influential, fastest, most powerful, most effective and most revered fighting airplanes of all time. As with any top list, there's sure to be some disagreement with the birds we've chosen to fill these 100 slots, and that will likely be more and more true as you move up the list toward the Number One warbird of all time. Along the way you may find some picks with which you disagree, but more importantly, you'll likely learn a lot about some great airplanes and their place in history and in the hearts of those who served. We hope you enjoy Flying Magazine's Top 100 Warbirds, and as always, we invite you to share your reaction with us. Enjoy! —Robert Goyer, Editor-in-Chief, Flying
