December: Ugly Aircraft!

Recommended Posts

For December, a fun theme.

To please all those people who think a particular plane / helo is ugly, here is a chance to show us why!

It can be any aircraft new/old/experimental of your choice so long as your shot is from flight sim, not digitally enhanced and hideous!

I will post a shot near the end of the competition although it will not be eligible as I have my "favourite" too biggrin.gif

The competition ends 23:59 Thursday 31st Dec 2009 but don't expect a result until well into the new year! stars.gifth_smiles73.gif

Good luck one and all and may I be the first to wish you seasons greetings!

Well, here are the three in my virtual hangar that I can think of right now:

Nieuport 17 (criticize me as you will, but I think that most biplanes and triplanes are ugly lolz)

de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver (while it is a fun plane to fly, it's not much to look at)

and finally, the Dornier 228 (certainly not the best-looking aircraft in the world, but she's got alotta power)

HIDDEN HISTORY

The ugliest thing about this piece of history is that it remains largely unnoticed, in FSX, at Edwards Air Force Base. When she flew, she was beautiful!

OK, here's a few of the ugly ones from my side of the hangar....i tend to keep these under wraps, don't want to scare any new AH members off do we!

Firstly, I present, to you, the most unashamedly ugly aircraft I ever cast eyes upon......the Transavia PL-12 Airtruk

And, secondly, the equally hideous Orlenok Ekranoplan

Good luck to you all.....i think we're going to need it!

Cessna 152 being buzzed by a business jet. Apologies to all you real pilots who did their first solo in one of there, but it's a pretty ugly little plane.
