Migs, F15, F16's and the stealth are cool!

Although it may not be a fighter, I think this thing below wins hands down as the ugliest:

Hey MiG-21 is not ugly - it look just like any fighter of its time. If you think it is ugly then in you probably wouldn't like any similar fighter of that time...
Also I think that however, you people put it F-16 is rather ugly looking. I mean there are many beautiful pictures of it but if you just come up to it, especially from the front it just doesn't look proportional. There's this intake thingy, which makes it look like a vacum cleaner (like JSF) and the glass (what do u call it?) cabin, cockpit glass I mean is blown up like a bubble.


I also think that Su-37 is beautiful an so is Berkut.
And certainly MIG-31!!! It looks GREAT when in air  Smile  Smile  Smile

All the best!

Beautiful? Any clean Hawker Hunter. The F-104 in bare metal finish. Cute? The de Havilland Vampire. Ugly? The Saab J-29.

BTW, Boeing's JSF contender goes under "Ugly yet somehow beautiful", and Lockheed-Martin's contender goes under "Nice".

I like the F-5, it´s not ugly!!

Most beautiful: F-14, Su-27 UB (and any 2 seater Flanker), Mig 29 (not the SMT).


Ugly: Mig 19, Mig 23, A-10, Su-25, F-101

Don't be offended, Rodrigo, it's a matter of personal taste. And yes, the extra fuel tank on the back of the MiG-29SMT makes the a/c looks so much uglier.

Flyhigh@tom,

That plane was discussed in detail on this forum a while back. Check out the topic entitled "Who Knows More about this airplane"(I would post the link, but I don't know how), and you will see what people are saying about it.

Hard to believe it actually flew.

Great looking: F-14, F-16
widely considered ugly, but I love'm F-4, A-10

During its trial phases, one critic was reportedly quoted to have mentioned, "During wind tunnel tests, the F-4 was found to be more aerodynamic flying backwards than forwards."
