For as long as there are military jets, there was a heated debate running about the best looking jet fighters ever made. The usual internet discussion participants always have their own particular favorites. For the most part, particular choices are subjective. However, common sense and the general feeling of what’s good looking, can help us yield some rather viable candidates for the top five looking jets ever made.
We’ve kept this short for the sole purpose of adding just what we feel is best looking. Some will argue a few of these planes shouldn’t have a place on this list, while some will vocally support them. On the broader scale it also means that we would love to hear your opinion, what grinds your gears and what airplanes would you like to include. It’s mostly a mix of American and Russian aircraft, as the other countries did make some fine jets, but overall these might well be the best looking jets ever made. Here are the top five best looking jet fighters by our opinion added right below.
2. McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom
