But they don't have beauty and grace like the western designs.

When you guys come in to land, do you ever feel a need to land and stay to one side of the dotted line and check over your shoulder before you cross it?

I think your politics is clouding your sense of aesthetic.

I think both side were pretty until about the mid 60s when both sides started slapping on a lot of new weapons systems, etc.

Everyone's built ugly bombers. B-52? Come on. Makes a Bear look downright stylish. However, Britains V-bombers were all quite attractive.

Fighters are a wash: English Electric Lightning? I'm British and it still makes me wince.

We won't even start into the A-10.

Pretty is as pretty does, I say.
