From Fokker biplanes to World War II fighters such as the Supermarine Spitfire and Messerschmitt Bf 109, from hefty bombers like the Boeing B-17 to Cold War classics such as the MiG-21 and on to stealth aircraft such as the SR-71 and Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor, each entry tells you all you need to know about the best there has been.
