That's OK then - glad you clarified it so succinctly

Enjoyed the video a lot. I would've expected the Mig-15 to have been rated higher.

Yeah - it's important to understand I guess that it's his take. We'll all have different views. I'd have put the F-14 at 1 just because it looks freakin' awesome...totally no military rationale there what-so-ever!

Interesting. Those planes look like bomber-nosed  variants of the Beechcraft 18.

And a googlechop later, here it is, either the Beechcraft AT-11 or SNB-1 Kansan:
