Hard question to answer, as in my opinion, most things capable of flying are at least to some extent beautiful. If pushed for an answer, I still don't know what I would say. Maybe the ATR-42 and ATR-72, but they're still pretty cool.

Yep. I've yet to see an aircraft that looked ugly. A lot of the ones mentioned above are actually INTERESTING looking. When we're all sick to death of the sight of underwing twinjets, we'll appreciate these aircraft even more.

The Concorde. Too long for its length, wings flimsy looking, engines encased in square boxes, and that silly pointy nose that has to droop just to land or take-off. Don't get me started on the interior. Cramped, dated seats, tiny windows, perhaps the ugliest interior in the last 30 years. The whole thing was an abomination.

Ever since I discovered the M-15 back in 1998, I've truly wanted to purchase and import one for myself. In a perfect world, I'd install amphibious floats and frequent the airshow circuit, just for the shock value.

I mentioned the Dreamlifter the last time we had an ugly plane thread, but I'll repeat it because it's another opportunity to share what I think a great description of it. An acquaintance once described it as looking "like a 747 with a bad allergic reaction."
