...and this topic should be pinned.

Nice list, but this topic should be pinned for what reason, NR?
It's common knowledge, easily, and readily found within the internet.
It has also been discussed, in varying forms, before within this forum and site.

What's with all the subsonic aircraft? I'm sure one could find many more jets to squeeze into the list. Using the CF-105 Avro Arrow for example. Its highest recorded speed was mach 1.98, so you could squeeze that in between the Saab 35 Draken and the Tu-22M Backfire and knock the P-3 Orion off the list.

Is the name of the forum, and all I see is a copy and paste, with no member content, nor the possibility of on topic discussion.
