Gotta be the vulcan a 4 jet bomber which a collegue i work with came back with 1 engine working and a nuclear bomb on board and he stepped out and said wanna go down the pub. On another occasion all the eletronics systems failed 1 generator caught fire and dowsed an engine in flames and still came back without a sweat. Such a shame it aint in service anymore well atleast we got xh558. And last week i actually flew xh558 there were some problems but they dont matter the extreme power and durabillity wil get you outta anything and i mean anything!

Visit my site for memories about v bomber crews and specifications and much much more!

Aint miltary but concorde in its 44 years of flying only 1 crashed and that was because of the pilot anyway. Thats safety.

probably the F-15. I saw this show on the history channal about F-15s. One time a F-15 got one of its wings torn off in a training exercise in Isrial and the pilot was able to land the aircraft safely. I think its on YouTube. Just serch "F-15 with one wing". Now thats tough.

If we were talking about civilian aircraft, I would go with a Cessna 100 series. they are used to teach pilots how to fly and are very forgiving. Hey why else would they be used to teach student pilots?

Tie between a C-130 and an A-10. Both can get shot to hell and still fly and both can fly on one motor for a long time. Of course the A-10 has that Titanium "bathtub" surrounding the cockpit.
