The most underpowered dog of an aircraft available. Then, assuming I
survived, it would make flying a Cessna 150 feel like a Spitfire....

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?
