For a bit more enjoyment for us armchair-riding experts, a more traditional and less ephemeral aircraft. The funny bits: it's allegedly designed to fly up to 65000 ft (20 km) high, and is powered by a kerosene-fed diesel motor. Was never flown yet, though. #aircraft #link https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/28409/the-mysterious-and-potentially-revolutionary-celera-500l-aircraft-may-fly-soon

Pusher engined aircrafts are notorious for overheating. They were tried numerous times during ww2 and around, but the issue was never solved. Still looks cool though

This beauty is shorter than A350, but has the same wingspan, number of passengers, and cargo capacity. Should consume 20% less fuel. #aircraft #link https://www.tudelft.nl/en/2019/tu-delft/klm-and-tu-delft-join-forces-to-make-aviation-more-sustainable/

«A flying scale model and a full-size section of the interior of the Flying-V will be officially presented at the KLM Experience Days at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in October» I wonder if a life-size protoype of the design will ever be built.

I haven't seen anything more uglier than this for a while.
