Defense Aircraft We Love
Awash as we all are in news about the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, defense editors and analysts at Aviation Week came together, virtually, to offer something more uplifting to look at—images of our favorite aircraft. The SR-71 Blackbird and its predecessor, the A-12, plus chunky airlifters and nimble French aerobatic aircraft have made the list. Also the PZL M-15 Belphegor, which looks much like it sounds. Clearly, we don’t agree on every entry. We’ll go on debating the merits and demerits of each and hope you’ll join in as well. Here they are.
