OK, is it just me, or does this just look ridiculous? I know MA has done this big ugly purple nose on their other planes with varying degrees of ugliness (IMHO), but on the Dash 8 and the
CRJ, they've gone way too far. I know they use the planes entire natural nose cone for this treatment, which makes some planes look idiotic.
It's a shame too because otherwise i think the Malev livery is very sharp.
Check these out .. and please tell me someone else agrees with me on this one !

Personally, I think it looks awful. I've never liked those black nosecones that you used to see years ago, and was more than happy to see them go away.
While I agree that it does make Malev's livery unique - to me, having a unique ugly livery isn't really something I'd see as an advantage. I'd prefer the less unique, but far better look of their planes without those darkened nosecones.
