On the heels of MIT’s design for the plane of the future, NASA has given us a peek into some of the new ideas they have slated for the not-so-distant future. Recently, NASA asked the three largest airplane companies in the US to come up with a design that would fit a very specific criteria. This project hoped to create a full-functioning plane by the year 2025 that would not only use significantly less fuel, but be cleaner and quieterand be able to haul ass. To our surprise, the designs they received from the trio were not only radical, but also a little bit retro!
According to me the design looks like a sparrow with a long wing… What is your say?
