In the history of aviation only a few of the thousands of aircraft designed and built proved to be so successful that they became aviation's historical icons. Deciding which aircraft sit proudly in "The Hall of Fame" is a difficult task. However, aircraft like the DC-3 sit proudly with the Lancaster, the Spitfire, the P-51 Mustang, the Canberra, the Phantom F-4, the F-15 Eagle, the F-18 Hornet and the F-111. There are a few other types in this select group and our site will display those worthy of the accolade.
