Would You Get On An Airplane That Holds 1,000 People? Not me!
If you were at the Albany County Airport and the plane you walked onto was filled with 999 other people, would you get on? Hey. Stranger things have happened. Boeing Corp. is in development of a plane that holds 1,000 individuals! That's alot of peanuts and pillows, my friend!
According to Pilot Outlook.com , Boeing has something in the wings (pun time) that they say will revolutionize air travel for the next century and beyond:
The radical Blended Wing design has been developed by Boeing in cooperation with the NASA Langley Research Center. This plane will have a wing span of 265 feet compared to the 747's 211 feet, and is designed to fit within the newly-created terminals used for the 555 - seat Airbus A380, which is 262 feet wide.
I'm sorry. Call me what you will. But I'm not getting into ANYTHING that leaves terra-firma with that many people in it! Are you SERIOUS? Apparently, the person who put this up on Youtube feels differently:
Yes, it looks cool. I'll give you that. But I'd much rather sit in it at the airport. I'm OK if they hold you on the runway for 7 hours. Especially the Albany Airport. It's relaxing there. It's when they take off and land that bothers me.
What do you love/hate about flying? Would love to know! Is it the elaborate meals they serve? The guy in the seat next to you that rightfully deserves 3 seats? Is it the pilot who says "We're going to ask you to securely fasten your seatbelts now. We're experiencing choppy air". I always think the guy knows more but wants to make us feel better. It's like the dentist who says "You're going to feel a little PRESSURE here". OK, enough. Your turn...
