Fighter Aircraft
Photos of Fighter Aircraft throughout the history of Aviation. Fighter aircraft are military aircraft designed mainly for air-to-air combat against other aircraft. Speed, maneuverability, and small size relative to other combat aircraft are often traits that define a fighter aircraft. Early aircraft were called 'Pursuit' (such as the P-51 Mustang) until 1947 when the aircraft were renamed to 'Fighter' designinations (such as the F-16 Viper). Examples include Sopwidth Camel, Fokker DR 1, P-51 Mustang, Spitfire, A6M Zero, FW-190, ME-190, Hurricane, P-38 Lightning, P-47 Thunderbolt, F4U Corsair, F-86 Sabre, MiG-15, F-4 Phantom, SU-27, F-14 Tomcat, F-18 Hornet, Tornado, F-22 Raptor and many many more.
