What A Let Down: The Worst Planes, Jets, And Helicopters Ever Made

Behold, The Worst Aircraft Ever Built

The Christmas Bullet, also called the Cantilever Aero Bullet, is considered to be one of the worst aircraft ever built. It was designed by Dr. William Whitney Christmas, who had no experience in aeronautical work. He claimed that he built planes that were lost to crashes, but there is no evidence beyond his claims.

The Christmas Bullet is pictured on the ground.

The Christmas Bullet could only gain enough flight to guarantee the death of the pilot. Christmas believed that the wings should be “flexible,” so he added no struts or braces. It was a disaster waiting to happen.
