Key additional details of source item/s
F14: Manufactured by Grumman Aerospace Corporation, first flight in 1970 and retired in 2006 by United States Navy but possibly still operational elsewhere today. It was a two-seat, twin-engine supersonic, twin-tailed fighter aircraft with variable automatic sweep wings during high speed intercept. Initially powered by two Pratt & Whitney TF30 Turbofan Engines, rated at 20900 lb (93kN) of thrust allowing a maximum speed of Mach 2.34, but 28% of all accidents were attributed to the engine. Later versions were equipped with GE F-110 engines with same rated top speed.

F15: Manufactured by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing), first flight in 1972 and is still in operation today. There were single and two seat versions. Earlier versions were powered by twin Pratt & Whitney F100-PW-100 engines and later by the improved F100-PW-200 engines. According to sources there have been no aerial combat related losses. During a training flight in 1983, a mid-air collision with a A4-Skyhawk caused a F-15's right wing to almost completely shear off. However the pilot managed to safely reach and land at an airbase nearby. The aircraft was successfully repaired and was engaged back into active service.

F16: Manufactured by General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin), first flight in 1974 and is still in operation today. There were single and two seat versions. Earlier versions were powered by the Pratt & Whitney F100-PW-200 engine and later by F100-PW-220, F100-PW-220/220E, GE F110-GE-100, GE F110-GE-129, F100-PW-229 and GE F110-GE-132 in various block series configurations.

FW190D: Manufactured by Focke-Wulf in Germany, first flight in 1939 and retired in 1945. It was a single-seat, single piston engine fighter aircraft. Most versions were powered by the BMW 801 radial engine.

P38: Manufactured by Lockheed Martin, first flight in 1936 and retired in 1961. 
It was a single-seat, twin piston-engined fighter aircraft. They were powered by variants of the GE Allison V-1710 engine including the V12s, V-1710F-17, some experienced detonation when operated at high power for extended periods.

Spitfire: Manufactured by Supermarine, first flight in 1939 and retired in 1965. 
It was a single-seat, single piston-engined fighter aircraft. They were powered by variants of the Rolls-Royce Goshawk engine, later the Rolls-Royce PV-XII V-12 (later named the "Merlin") engine and the Rolls-Royce Griffin engine.
