Personally, as cool as this aircraft looks, I want to see a return of airships.
Engineers from the University of Cambridge and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have unveiled a radical design for a “silent aircraft”.
The team says any noise from the concept aircraft, known as the SAX-40, would be “imperceptible” beyond the boundaries of an airport. It would also burn far less fuel than conventional planes.
The design is the result of three years’ work and includes both new and existing technologies.
