OKay.. after MONTHS of reading posts about "asthetics" I have to ask:
REALLY MATTER IF IT
'S UGLY OR
It's a plane. Is it functional? I guess that's left to be discovered, but, what does the 'prettyness' of the plane have to do with it?
You know, it's sad. We have a little less than a year before the test flights are scheduled to take place. Are we going to have to have "It's ugly!" conversations EVERY time someone posts a pic?
Imagine back when the 747 was built. Never before had anyone seen such a large plane. Was it thought of just as "magnificent" and "majestic" as it is today?
We had NO idea that the 747 would look so majestic as it leaves the runway, or returns to the runway, so did people think it was nasty then too? Who knows.. What matters, is that it's a functional and very successful aircraft, who we have come to love and cherish and be mesmerized by it's sheer size and (what we now now) as beautiful lines.
A CHANCE. Please. For the sanity of ALL
