    BWB

    It looks like the sort of creation that could have graced Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds show in the 1960s. Yet this vision of the future could be the way we fly in the next 10 years according to Boeing with there new Blendid Wing-Body concept.The compony exects a prototype within three years. The BWB will seat 800 people. All the passengers will be seated in the middle of the aircraft. It will take less fuel and all. The aircraft will look like a huge B2.This design was actually invented in 1920s by Jack Northrop. But the Airbus industrie has rejected this design...any one knows why??

      RE: BWB

      If you've seen the talk of Airports not being big enough for the A380, specifically runways not being able to take a plane that size, how would the dimensions of the BWB possibly fit? THAT's why Airbus passed it over.

      And as to it flying in 10 years, the A380 will take 5 years, and that's after 2-3 years of working on how to evacuate 600 people if anything goes wrong. What do Boeing propose to do for that? And why did they 2 years ago dismiss a rival for the A380, as there wasn't a market for a plane that size in their view?
