One of the most high profile airlines in the industry has decided to introduce wider seats in a bid to accomodate larger passengers.
Aircraft carriers have a really short runway, so to get the jets up to speed crews use special catapults to fling planes into the air. Now, Airbus is saying that we should be using similar technology with passenger jets, saving fuel while reducing noise for people who live near airports.
Boeing has released more information about its Aeroloft, which is kind of like an eight-bed dorm room that you can add to the top of what is already the biggest and baddest business jet in the sky.
You know it's hot out when your flight is delayed because the plane sank four inches into the melting pavement.
Well, this isn't something you see every day — good thing, too. A Boeing 767 traveling from Newark Airport in Jersey to Warsaw, Poland had to make an emergency landing at its destination without its landing gear. After the jump: a lot of dust and fire.
Yelken Octuri's no stranger to designing fantastic space aircraft or even insectoid-like flying yachts, but this time the designer's gone and outdone every other creation he's ever done before with his new flying yacht for three Masqat Airways corporate executive princes. Who said sails were out of style?
We've been following the sun-powered Solar Impulse plane for a very long time. Since 2008, we've seen it complete its test run, conquer a 26-hour day and night flight, and now it's successfully complete a flight from Switzerland to Belgium.
Well, darn it all. Things were looking like they were on track for the Airborne Laser Test Bed (or ALTB), a Boeing 747 equipped with a high-power laser designed to shoot down missiles. Now, after two failed tests by the ALTB, are our high-flying, laser-filled dreams coming to an end?
Iran's "Bavar 2" stealth plane/boat-thing is billed as a stealth craft that can cruise through the water or fly, and it's equipped with a machine gun and possibly missiles. Are you worried yet? The craft's been ridiculed before for being impractical, yet maybe we're writing it off too soon.
This seaplane sailboat hybrid designed by Yelken Octuri seats four and looks pretty neat too. I particularly like the orange wings/sails that fold horizontally in "Plane mode" and vertically in "Boat mode." Best of all, Yelken's creation has already made it off the design tables, so you might even catch this one in action.
