Geez, only 3 choices!!!?? I could list a hundred+ favorite civilian planes and as many warbirds! But here goes- later I'll probably think of others I like even more...

1) Beech Staggerwing

2)Waco Biplane

3)GeeBee R2

Makes me feel guilty for leaving out all the others!
MAAC 50249

Planes, Pedals, and Motorcycles! (In that order!)

I stopped being politically correct when I found out that some people were offended by it.

Really there are too many to pick from.

For the moment I would say: DC-3,Beech D17 Staggerwing, Beech 18. These are all subject to change as I have a hard time deciding. : :

Beech Staggerwing 17 (any variant)
Pitts Special (most variants)
Waco (most biplane variants umf etc. incl. cabin model)

... looks like the staggerwing is winning this "poll"

but what's not to like about;
