Kind of surprised at the answers. Only one vote for an Albatros D.II.
I would choose an Albatros D-V or a Pfalz D.III due to aesthetics.
For the Allies, a DH.2 (Seems to be a popular choice)

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?
