Not often have the Germans come up with a whopper, but that one burns my eyes. 
 

I’ll never be able to unsee it.

Like there should be a nipple ring hanging from the front.

But I sure respect the Argosy. A real hauler

Sorry, Hubert, but it isn’t always the British, my friend.

How about these, Boeing has excelled here with the nose. The Farman Jabiru has both looks and name to match. But back to Boeing.
I still maintain if they had given the X-32 a more aggressive look, they could have won theat contract

Well, where do we start?

That Boeing looks like it needs outriggers for that schnoz.

The center engine on the Farman is blanked by.......... the entire aircraft. I expect it's sole purose in life was to disturb the airflow just enough to allow the outrigger props to lose 80% of their efficiency. That and to ensure the interior was a noisy as possible.

And the X-32, what can be said other that it got the last laugh. It'll live in cartoon drawings for all eternity.

When I lived with Ben Buckley in the early 70's, he had recently lost an Air Truck in a crash. It is a crop duster.

It must have been “fun” to land gracefully....
