Ugliest Airplane

Beauty is a personal thing. But somethings are so... ummm.... Utterly Ugly that no one could argue about the issue. Of course, we expect that many of you will argue anyways!

After a few photos have been collected, we'll start a voting process, as well as "feature" the worst of the worst. Now, some of you drive Luscombes, and some of you drive Tri Pacers; the webmaster has owned both and knows that this section of the site is a rumble in the making.

Soooo.... Let's rumble!

A project in work ... needs to fly through a paint storm! Nick Jilek 3/3/2004 View
I first saw this aircraft in 1960 in a Flying Magazine and thought it to be the most ugly of aircraft I had ever seen. Joel Wheeler 12/27/2003 View
What happens when airplanes are designed by committees (No, really, a Canadian government committee laid down the specs for this turkey). Not only does it looking like a flying streetcar, but this 1930s Canadian Vickers Velos is on record as being the worst aircraft ever built in Canada - a complete dog. The test pilots flew it only under protest, and it was known as "The Dead Loss" around the factory. Mark Perry 10/13/2003 View

The Fairey Gannet is so full of features, it is considered by many the ugliest airplane. Tandem counter-rotating turbo props, folding wings (TWO folds per wing!), radome, bubble cockpit, antennae galore, extra fins and stabilizers, you name it, it hangs on this multi-purpose British military aircraft.
