[WWI] Which airplane would you fly?

I too am thinking I'd rather be flying the Junkers J.1, since if I was flying a fighter in 1918 chances are 50/50 I would not survive my first flight over the trenches.  The J.1 was the most survivable aircraft for the crew I think

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?
