What kind of passenger airliner will Airbus be making by 2050? One with some awe-striking capabilities:
Perhaps the most noticeable feature of the aircraft is the exterior, which will be produced with a smart-membrane that will turn transparent on command in order to make sure passengers who are cruising the skies will have an interesting view of the stars and clouds.
As soon as David Klaus read the news he started his due diligence investigation into the airplane of the future:
- The unanswered question is if the contents of the plane are invisible as well, or do outsider observers see a bunch of people sitting in rows but no exterior?
- Do people within the plane see interior fittings or is there no privacy in the toilet?
- Will the flight attendants wear red bustiers with golden eagles or stylized-‘W’s over them?
