The Airbus Concept Plane Scares Me

Okay, I don't like flying in the first place. I spend most of the flight pretending that I'm not 35,000 feet in the air. The Airbus 2050 concept plane is no help in this regard. A see-through cabin? Heck, why not just make the floor transparent and issue me a Depends undergarment upon boarding. Who's flying this thing, Wonder Woman? Those of you wackos (I love you anyway) who love flying will be the first in line for this. I'll stick with the cramped tube with tiny windows that we have today, thankyouverymuch. You can watch a video here.

  1. THAT IS TOTALLY FLIPPIN' AWESOME! (and no, if you made the floor transparent, I wouldn't ride in it). Way cool! And Wonder Woman could fly me around in it any day!

  2. I'm terrified of heights, but planes don't bother me. Go figure. This is an *interesting* idea, but I'm thinking of the transparency, how soon the outer layer would be ablated by particulate matter in the air @ planes' speeds....

  3. Sandra - I love you for using the word "ablated" +1 to you!

  4. If the goal is a wide cabin, they should go for a blended wing-body aircraft.http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS5V-R1gJb6iifm4GJBIMtvtfiTDM09BXzKQ4jBlc8DIEYBaJdk
