OK, let's have a look and see what a Tu-22m looks like.

I know this stuff is on every aviation forum Rap, but it is just here to try and generate interest. The forum needs everything it can get.

Why the C-17? Great aircraft, not bad looking for a Cargo plane either, but surely there must be more than that for it to arrive in your top 5?

 OK, just "aircraft", not "military aircraft"?
 SR-71--So far ahead of it's time it was spooky.
 Caproni CA-60-- could you imagine (if it had gone into service as envisioned) flying across the Atlantic in that thing? Talk about a white-knuckled flight!!
                        I like it because it was so improbable.
 Su-34-- Because it looks sooo cool, and like I said before,it has a bed, kitchen and toilet, and can fly rings around any other
             plane.................................... that has a bed, kitchen and toilet!
 Extra-300-- an inverted flat spin is so much fun!
 AN-225-- size matters

As far as I know, the Ca-60 flew once, broke something upon landing, and the pilot walked away saying he'd never try that again.

Tu-22m is my favorite aircraft actually. I read all the articles about the history of this aircraft. So I amazed when they used this aircraft.
