When the movie "Top Gun" came out in the 1980s introducing the world to the F-14 Tomcat, a new generation of flying aces was born. Suddenly the entire country could tell the difference between an F-14, F-16 and F-18. While these jets still secure the skies, do you know which planes won World War II, or which planes scoured South East Asia during the Vietnam War? 

This quiz will test your knowledge of military planes and when those planes first entered service. While some planes will go down in infamy due to their pilots, such as the Japanese Zero and their Kamikazee attacks, others were notorious death machines such as the  Brewster F2A Buffalo, also known as the "Flying Coffin" by its own pilots who were well aware of the planes horrific casualty rate. 

But, do you know if a plane fighting in World War II entered service in the '30s or '40s? Or, maybe it was the '20s. Is the Tomcat from the '70s or '80s? Even today, verticle landings are uncommon, but the Harrier has been doing it for awhile. Do you know is the Harrier entered service in the '80s? The '90s? or in the 2000s?

Test your military plan knowledge by trying to figure out which decade these planes first entered service. Good luck pilot!
