For handling & fun -- Sopwith Pup.
For a bit more -- S.E.5a.
Both choices based on my fondness for British and my knowledge of my own piloting skills.
If I had to choose between the two, it'd be the Pup.

Now here's the thing:
If you were given the chance to be transported in time to some point between 
1914 to 1918 on the European Western front of the Great War, given some 
training to fly airplanes (at Issoudun or at Aviano or at Schwerin) and then 
you could choose ANY aircraft of the era to make a tour over the trenches... 
I guess I'd choose -for practical reasons- a Fokker D.VIIf. However, for the 
looks, I'd choose a Nieuport 11. Or a Sopwith Pup.
What airplane would you choose?
