In flight putting practice, a touch of amateur astronomy, northern/ southern lights up close, see the lightening bolt travel through your plane – bodes well for real IFE
Though recalling the sales pitch of the superjumbo A380 and all the room for everyone to mingle, drinks bars, bar seating, multiple treatment rooms etc didn’t make it into the final config as the operators chose to max pax. Hopefully this will be different as it is composition of the flying tube itself which is the marked difference.14th June 2011 at 06:23 #467029
I saw this as well. Amazing. How spectacular would be the lightning shows. I wonder if it will ever be built? I’ll be in my nineties (hopefully;-) ) by 2050 so probably to old to fly anyway. Would really want the first row seat though.14th June 2011 at 11:45 #467030
Fabulous, some people have great imaginations.
for the front row there will be a surcharge!!!

And now with Oxygen and Hydrogen (Water??) fuelled engines – London to Tokyo in 2 hours….20th June 2011 at 15:31 #467032
Binman, the pity is they do not have such great imaginations. Most of these concepts were thought of some 60 or 70 years ago by one of my hero’s, Burnelli.
Have a look at this: http://tinyurl.com/62y5uyh
or else google Burnelli. Of course he did not have the materials we have today but none-the-less many of these concepts were built and di fly. It’s a shame they were not adopted commercially, flying would have been safer and more fun if they had.20th June 2011 at 17:17 #467033
Methinks transparent aluminium was first mooted by Mr. Scott
(aka Scottie, Star Trek, Long Voyage Home) 😉
