Right now my favourite airliner is the E-190 because it has massive windows and no middle seats.
Legacy Hornet is best fighter.
BK-117 and Kiowa are tied for best helicopter.

Due to work I'm bias. The best helo's are the AW139 family including AW189 and 169.

My favourite fighter aircraft is SHAR FA.2 with Ground Attack being Tonka, Bomber being Vulcan.

Best civilian has to be either the VC10 or Tristar due to both being too far ahead of their times to be successful. Best GA is Grob 115E Tutor, great fun to fly

My favorite airplane is the F-14 Tomcat, particularly those with F-110 engines. I'll not pretend that it was the best of all time, but that doesn't really matter.
