See-through aircraft

Like the world’s best rollercoaster (without the twists!), Airbus has revealed its concept for what could be possible in aircraft design by 2050, a see-through plane! Imagine being enveloped by clouds, or seeing the sky all around you instead of viewing it through the currently tiny windows in most aircraft.

The aircraft’s bionic structure mimics the efficiency of bird bone which is optimised to provide strength where needed, and allows for an intelligent cabin wall membrane which controls air temperature and can become transparent to give passengers open panoramic views.

Not content with just designing a possible transparent aircraft, Airbus has gone to town with ideas for new gadgets and ways that passengers can enjoy their journey. Included is in-flight entertainment powered by the heat of passengers’ bodies, walls that change according to light conditions, holographic pop-up gaming displays, and a “vitalising zone” with vitamin and antioxidant enriched air, mood lighting, aromatherapy and acupressure treatments.

Airbus engineering executive vice-president Charles Champion said: “Our research shows that passengers of 2050 will expect a seamless travel experience while also caring for the environment. The Airbus Concept Cabin is designed with that in mind, and shows that the journey can be as much a voyage of discovery as the destination. Whichever flight experience is chosen, the passenger of 2050 will step out of the Airbus Concept Cabin feeling revitalised and enriched.”
