warbird
 n.— «The Warbirds are definitely showstoppers everywhere they are seen. Warbird is a term used to describe vintage military aircraft. Although the term originally implied piston driven aircraft from the World War II era, it is now often extended to include all military aircraft, including jet-powered aircraft, that are no longer in military service.» —“Aviation Day draws large crowd to Benton County” by Carol Wallace Camden Chronicle (Tennessee) Oct. 10, 2007.
