For a time i thought the airbus a380 was the ugliest
plane in the world, but now i believe that this
comet beats it. a real monster!

This was in fact the first development stage towards a noseless aircraft.

The original Comet is astonishingly beautiful, but they had to go and put a huge, bulbous growth on its nose. Looks like an allergic reaction. Poor Comet.
