The Area 88 Opening is pretty good in terms of both the song and video, but it's tough to compete with the Last Exile OP. I've been in love with that song since I first saw the series and the video isn't doing it any disservice.

Both opening sequences are quite awesome but Last Exile, being a more recent title, has the advantage animation wise.
Musically "Mission (Fuga)" stays short of what I would expect for that Opening sequence. I think something more rocking would have suited better all the aircraft there.
Cloud Age Symphony suits perfectly the opening sequence and the feeling of the series. Plus musically is a very decent piece of work.
I have to go for Cloud Age Symphony, after all it is one of my favorite opening themes outthere!

This was my first tough vote. Both openings had a lot of good things going for them, but in the end i had to give my vote to the Area 88 OP "Mission (Fuga)". Why, you ask? Not very often in anime do we get to see good old fashioned combat between jet fighters. The sequences of dogfights gave me nostalgia towards the Ace Combat video games and it also helps that the animation quality put into the battles is top notch. Same goes for the backgrounds and characters. The blonde man whom i assume is the main character kept reminding me of Roy Fokker of Macross which also was a nice nostalgic touch. As for the song, no doubt that the other one is more melodic and soothing but i seem to have a crush on more dramatic pieces so the touch of high classical mixed with the techno helped seal the deal.

No question - "Mission (Fuga)" is one of my all-time favorite soundtracks. I get goosebumps whenever I listen to it.
