    Considering the Cutlass is a severely bastardised Lippisch/Arado design schema, powered by two of the very weakest and shittiest jet engines ever known to take to the skies, I fail utterly to see where you're coming from, here.
    Had the Cutlass been given decent engines, my view would differ.

    However, according to the poor bastards who actually flew the thing, it was a bastard in the air, and almost universally disliked by those who had suffered its' vagaries.

    I agree the Phantom classes as "functional beauty" rather than aesthetic beauty. In my view, the UK models are actually better looking, despite that the US models were better in performance terms.

    Harrier, yes. Swift, stylish, but not a favourite of mine.

    My likes are, in rough order:

    Me.262

    F86 (same thing, really)

    Gotha 229

    Lippisch P13 -> XF 92, F102, F106.

    Hawker Hunter

    Fairey FD2

    DH108

    SR53/SR177

    Bristol 188

    Sud Ouest Trident

    Phantom II

    A5 Vigilante.

    A3D Skyray

    F111 Aardvark/ EF111 Raven.

    Folland Gnat.

    BAC Lighting.

    TSR2.

    Harrier.

    SR71 Family.

    After that, it gets a bit complicated, so, those will do for now.

    (Sidelight: has any one ever considered what an aircraft design originating from a combination of Lippisch/Tank/Multhopp would have been like?)

    Working with BAE systems I can only say the Eurofighter Typhoon:

    But I loved the Phantom when I was a teenager.The tail and the nose looked like it was coming out of a sci-fi movie.

    While the EuroTyphoon is admirable, I've sought long and hard to really distinguish it, or its' Rafale cousin, from the Saab Grippen family.

    (I've always had the sneaking suspicion the Europeans merely copied the good points of the F16XL and re-shaped it a little, then jammed the F18 engines into the frame, so-to-speak.)

    Yes, `tis an admirable and capable weapons platform/fightercraft. I'm just not certain what makes it outstanding, as such.

    I couldn't agree more, pdf27: the Gloster Javelin was a horror. This from the nephew of a teacher of mine who flew the thing.

    The F4 Phantom is proof that with enough power even a brick will fly. A deadstick landing in one of those was referred to as a 'crash.'

    Jets I like.

    He 280

    And again.

    The HE-280 flew in 1941 and was more manoeuvrable an aircraft, in a dogfight no less, than the FW-190. Had this aircraft gone into production WW2 could have been very different.

    HE 162

    And again.

    Given how quickly the aircraft was designed and put into production it was a wonder it did not have serious flaws but, while it took a skilled pilot to fly, by all accounts it was a nice aircraft.

    Finally the AR-234

    From water does all life begin.
