The Shorts Skyvan is uglier than the 360. Although, the 360 might come in second! The disturbing thing is...airlines bought the 360's! What were they thinking? I was walking past a 360 on the tarmac in Le Ceiba, Honduras, talking to my brother about how we didn't want to get on one. There was a mechanic inside the plane working, then, as we were looking at it, a large metal part fell off the bottom of it! Luckily, we got an LET-410 for our next flight instead of that thing!
I agree. Many of them look utterly amazing! Some are gorgeous, some weird, some like a concorde but actually a bomber... Russian Aircarft certainly don't look like American or European aircraft but they aren't ugly.
Back on topic, the Aviation Traders Carvair isn't such a looker, nor is the A380 IMO although it's not the ugliest ever. I don't particularly like the look of the ERJ140/145 or C-17...
but strangely enough I do rather like the shorts 360
