Worst Planes and Helicopters in History

Have you heard of the Wright Brothers? They are amongst the best-known aircraft designers in history, but they also had many failures along the way. There are some other designers that you wouldn't have heard about who tried and failed to come up with new designs for airplanes and helicopters. In the 1950s and 1960s there were many who tried to innovate aircraft so they could be one step ahead of their competitors and opponents. In the end, most of these designs were an utter disaster.

Unfortunately, this list doesn't only display failed military aircraft designs. There are also a few commercial airplanes that should have never been allowed to fly. It's a terrifying thought that people ever considered flying in these disastrous planes and helicopters.

Everything about this aircraft was supposed to be a great success. The plane was supposed to symbolize victory because the number "75" came from the French 75-mm gun that was used in the Great War. Additionally, adding the word "eagle" to the name was supposed to represent American greatness.

The P-75 Eagle was known as the Frankenstein of interceptors, as it combined parts from better aircraft. Unfortunately, the engine that was used for the Eagle was nothing but a disappointment. It didn't have enough horsepower and it made the plane's performance underwhelming.
