It is not a full loop but as near as you can get but it still looks the part, that is the biggest helicopter that I have seen attempt it so they must have been instructors flying them.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

What do folks think of this - a transparent aeroplane?

Personally I wouldn't like to fly on it as it would be a constant reminder of how far down it is if anything went wrong.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

This might be created as a one off or for promotional events but it will never make it to commercial paseenger airliners.
Too many people are afraid of flying and that would just make people panic even more.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Would increase the likelihood the pilots could see the wing clearance though. Stop them hitting things with wing tips

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Solar Impulse flew for twenty minutes at the Paris Air show on June 26th.

It is capable of solar powered flight night or day.

The Solar Impulse is powered by 10000 solar cells, which cover its 207-foot wingspan, and generates about 40 horsepower.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Good video

If one day there was a way of powering commercial airliners on alternative power than jet fuel, imagine how safer they would be. Less likely to get massive fires.

Living at heathrow I used to regulary go to the end of the runway when it was taking off eastward on the southern runway (09R) for the evening flight. In the autumn/spring it was perfect to see the plane and also the afterburners

That sounds good pity it did not fly out of stanstead which is my nearest airport would have loved to have seen it fly more often.
