    For me:
    Lockheed P-38F-G-H model Lightning
    De Haviland Mosquito

    In no particular order, by the way, its difficult to pick just three

    B-26 Marauder

    Bristol Beaufighter

    Spitfire

    I imagine the Spitfire would come close to the top of alot of lists, its tough to put my finger on what it is exactly, but it has a grace and presence that is still unequaled to this day

    If my question had been revised to the "Top Five"... the "Spit" would have been on my list as well.
    I think it's the uniqueness and beauty of that elliptical-wing.
