Top 100 Airplanes: Platinum Edition

We count down the top 100 aircraft of all time, featuring a new No. 1 and 20 new airplanes.

Flying Magazine proudly introduces Top 100 Airplanes: Platinum Edition, which celebrates our latest Flying book, entitled Flight: 100 Greatest Aircraft. In creating the book, we decided to include some airplanes that should not have been left off the original Top 100 Airplanes list; the hard part was kicking out 20 great airplanes to make way for the new guys. When you get to number one, you’ll notice the old top dog has been dethroned. I won’t give away the ending, but suffice it to say, the new number one is an airplane that perfectly captures the essence of what Flying has been for many, many decades. Enjoy!
