THE WORLDS UGLIEST AIRCRAFT COMPETITION!

Postby black duck » Fri Aug 10 2012, 03:29

This site has become far too serious of late soooo, to lighten things up a tad I have devised a cunning plan……………THE WORLDS UGLIEST AIRCRAFT COMPETITION!!!!!.............THIRD PRIZE….there isn’t one……..SECOND PRIZE………nup…………FIRST PRIZE……..you should have the idea by now!

Not to be elitist, it’s open to planks as well :twisted: (that should keep the politically correct twat’s happy! :D ) It also gives the closet plankies among us a chance to attempt to convince us all that they really, really hate planks, they really do!! :roll: and they only ever fly them because the have to, or they were curious and didn’t enjoy it one bit! :| and they never, never hang out at flying clubs, or………..own a plank!!! :? Not us Nooo!!

So without further ado, I’ll get the ball rolling with one of my favourites, a real cracker!uglier than a hat full of arseholes!!………….I give you from the Eastern block, from the glory day’s of the cold war…….from that brave little, "the meat in the sandwich" …. host to more foreign military than Patpong Road…..POLAND! and from a company who's name I can’t pronounce……….THE PZL-MIELEC M-15 BELPHEGOR!!!!!! :D

So, when the US military were experimenting with LSD, they gave it to their design engineers as well……….in liberal doses! :lol:

A good idea needs landing gear as well as wings to get off the ground.

Now that's actually kinda cute. Is it pretend or does it really honestly fly? When it taxi's up to the hangar you'd expect Donald Duck to hop out.

you do realize that the definition of "Cute" is Ugly but interesting right? :lol: I always look horrified when someone refers to my foals as "cute" for that very reason.... :o

Do they make Burkhas big enough for an aircraft? This one deserves it (not for the helicopter, of course) :lol:

This one from the Italian rotary wing history books. I believe it is a Fiat. I am glad Agusta have learnt some lessons from this.
