Wrong. Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder.

It has the tail of the Boeing 747SP

Maybe it wouldn't be so ugly if it didn't look as if the front is held on with masking tape.

And it strikes me as ridiculous to have a supply chain that requires moving such enormous parts back and forth across the Pacific. Something is very wrong when it's cheaper to make wings (or whatever) in China and then fly them (one at a time?) to the U.S. instead of just making the whole damn thing in one place.

I'm not sure the international supply chain is about savings, so much as it is about sharing the wealth (and development risk).

I always thought the Barling XNBL-1 was the ugliest
