Have you ever wondered what were the World's most useless/horrible aircraft?
Given that many of us are pondering deeply over the 'Greatest 100', it struck me that, as a light-hearted relief from this self-imposed mental task, it just might interest quite a number of you to consider just which were the most horrible, utterly useless, ineffective aircraft ever to go into production and enter either military or civil service? I believe there are many candidates for this accolade and I hasten to say that one intends no disrespect to their designers for, as we well know, Govt. interference and the rigid setting of impractical specifications, has often led to rather poor, or even bizarre results! There have been many aircraft that suffered badly as a result of having been "designed by a committee". I also should stress that these abominations have occurred in all aircraft producing nations so it is no shame to look back at one's own homeland and smile at some of the simply 'orrible creations that have (un) graced our skies. Anyway, aviation enthusiasts, it is just an idea and may well wither on the metaphorical vine. What think ye?
