Looks all wrong to me.

Even the props are back to front :eek:

But I guess it's economical with, judging from the bulbous fuselage, a good payload.

By the sound they make, they're beast. I bet they're interesting to fly..

I'm amazed they do! Have seen one or two in the skies over Manchester and, boy, they are ugly!

Flying Shamu. That's got to be the ugliest thing you can buy for $7m USD. Some of these people have a lot of money but no taste...sigh. Guess not everything that come out of Italy looks good...

Agree, but from a pure flying point of view, I've never heard a bad thing said about them. I'd love to fly one - FL410 at M.67. What's not to like?
