1. Best plane - the one you happen to be flying

2. Sometimes the Navy buys planes that seem a little strange

3. But the Navy never buys planes that are a real p.o.s. (G)

4. I'm too old to fly 'um any more .... so the rest of you guys go have
some fun and tell me about it later.

That depends on what you want that plane to do.

I'd say the best naval plane EVER for whatever purpose you needed, was
the S-3 Viking.

It could:

Find Subs by dropping sonobouys, and using its MAD
Kill subs with Torps
Kills big ships with Harpoons
Kill small ships with Mavericks
Carpet bomb with 500lb bombs
Lay mines
Collect ELINT
Shoot down other planes with Aim-9s (intended for Bears & Mainstays)
Pefrorm COD services
Refuel thirsty Hornets

and...of course, bring the President onto a carrier for what would be
both his most glorious and most embarassing moment.
