One of the most unusual aircraft I have seen is the HFB 320 Hansa Jet. Grand Aire Express, a small cargo operator here @ SDF has about 8 of them in their fleet, of which only 2-3 are operational, the rest are used for spares. The most unusual feature are their forward swept wings, which supposedly adds to some aerodynamic advantages. This aircraft crashed on take-off from SUS on 30 Nov 2004.
