The 13 Ugliest AirplanesSome 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) More...

The French designed some ugly airplanes.
They are beautiful on the inside...
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.
