Given that the APT prototype was gas powered, not very long.

Not really transport, but the F15 'Eagle' is a modern icon of the military aviation world, along with the Harrier 'Jump Jet', the AH64 'Apache' helicopter and the B-2 Stealth Bomber.

Concorde is an obvious transport icon though, with just 14 built it was always a doomed plane, but no-one can deny it was a great aircraft and fantastic engineering feat.
