So ugly that it's unable to fly.

Instead, the Earth itself simply rejects it and pushes it away


Fun fact: it's actually the paint job that keeps it in the air. The optimism depicted in the flying bird allows it to defy gravity and get off the ground. :D

That's a really colorful bird Peter, where the warpaint is covering the strange shape of the plane hopefully :D. My son did his first parachute jump out of this one, so it's kind of down memory lane for me.

Cheers Rob

Surely could be the case but she sure can climb

 Keep 'em comin


No kidding.  I did my flying surrounded by the limes of Beavers, Otters, Twin Otters, Caribou, and Buffalo, and I thought I knew STOL.  
Then I saw a PC-6 takeoff and it made the Twotter look like a slouch.  It’s all about big power, high lift, and density altitude.  Lightly loaded helps too. 😃
