  • Old aviation saying I just heard

    In the aviation community, there's an old saying when trying to identify photos of old airplanes:

    If it's ugly, it's British.

    If it's weird, it's French.

    If it's ugly and weird, it's Russian.

    That's funny! And sounds about right (except some British warplanes, spitfires are quite handsome in my opinion)
    At sea, it's force not reason that confers sovereign rights

      If it's ugly, it's British.
      Unless of course it is / was one of the following:

      Sopwith Pup
      Sopwith Camel
      SE-5
      Hawker Hurricane
      Supermarine Spitfire
      DeHavilland Mosquito
      Hawker Tempest
      Hawker Fury
      Dehavilland Hornet
      The Canberra
      The Neptune
      The Vickers Vulcan aka Avro Vulcan
      Panavia Tornado
      The Typhon

      Those all pretty much look exactly like a plane should look.
