Favorite Beautiful Ugly Liveries

Sat Feb 23, 2008 6:32 pm

I once saw a program on television about the British Invasion rock and roll era. The show commented on the comparisons that were made between the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Most people agreed that the members of the Beatles were more "cute" than the members of the Rolling Stones, but one female fan of the Stones commented about the Rolling Stones saying "they're so ugly, they're beautiful." That got me thinking, what are your favorite airline liveries that are so ugly they are beautiful? My nominees are:

How bout Braniff. There's something I like about those big orange 747's.
