Some of these mutts flew just fine. Others barely made it into the air. But aviation would be the poorer if it didn't have engineers willing to take such risks. (www.historynet.com) 更多...

So who lost the courage to add the contemporary A388 to this list?

What is amazing is that these planes actually flew. The are dynamics of some are to say the least not the best; this was way before computers helped planes fly that shouldn't.

The A388 as far as looks go. while it ain't the best looking plane I've seen, I'll give it a 6 out of 10. I would like Boeing to take another stab at the nose of the 787. To me it is reminiscent of the old convair 880 and an old British plane. To me it just does not have that Boeing look.

Ah... reminds me of the aircraft recognition maxim...
If it's ugly, it is British
If it's wierd, it is French
If it's both ugly and wierd, it is Russian.

I gotta say the A380 needs to be on the list. Maybe there should be a "Really Big and Ugly" list.

The Super Guppy should be added to the list. While exceptionally practical, it falls far short of the 'attractive' category.

No Super Guppy or OV-1 Mohawk!? I'll admit, those listed were pretty fugly.

...and how about the Carvair ??

On the other side of the coin, the Boeing 707-727-737 pointed end shape is probably the best looking front end shape around

One could also add the OV-10 Bronco to the list ...

There is no ugly airplane. Each one has its proper charm.
Very good article!

@Joao Melo you are right, the only ugly craft occur in fiction.
