Ugly Aeroplanes!

Here's a link I was sent by a good mate, Gavin. It has a range of aviation pictures (a couple of samples are below). In particular, look through the "Things with Wings" section of the site...

Here's a couple of sample pictures. Regrettably, these are some of the better looking aircraft!

'Stipa-Caproni tubular fuselage monoplane'

I wonder just how that one performed...

Well, seen any flying recently? :-)

Lol true. Just wondering if the venturi fuselage increased thrust or just restricted it.

Who cares? It's ugly!!
