In case you wondered, this plane, the XB-70 Valkyrie, was not eligible for consideration because it never became a production plane.

Our reader survey last week saw a lot of people sending in their preferences for the most beautiful plane to have ever taken to the air.  While everyone had their own preferred three choices, a very clear winner emerged.

You can probably guess what the winner is, and maybe you’ll not be surprised about the runner-up airplane, either.  But you might be surprised at some of the others in the top ten, and if isn’t enough, we extended the analysis all the way to the top 25 planes.

Old or new, big or small, slow or fast – they’re (almost) all there.
