It would just be a matter of habituating the general public to the new shape.
Maybe. Passengers never really see what an airplane looks like anyway...they self inject/insert themselves via the jet way and file into their seats. Most don't know and don't care what plane they are on. In such a plane they probably would get lost trying to wander around and find their place. Another factor is the 90 second rule for evacuation. That might be hard to accomplish from deep inside the plane. Or, other factors: how wide is the gear track? Will it fit at most airports in and around the gates? Still, if it has distinct operational and efficiency advantages it should be worth development.
Great read, thanks.
That's pretty cool. Thanks!
Tonight on Netflix I came across "The Real Battle of Britain" with the McGregor brothers. Fantastic documentary about the air battle that took place.

Always liked the B-58. Where is this one located?
That would be the Nation Museum of the USAF at Wright-Patterson in Dayton, OH. Cold War Hangar.
Yep, and the bird just to it's left in that shot is one of the few B-36's left in existence.....
Awesome photo. That thing would break the sound barrier...
always remember the 'sonic booms' as a kid.
I reckon, now there would be panic in urban areas.
I was wondering if that was Dayton; I've seen that one in person, then, wasn't positive if it was Dayton or not.
The B29 and 36 on display are also very nice there. They've done a neat job of arranging things by era.
For any of you that haven't been to the museum in Dayton....plan to be there the whole day and you still won't see it all with any detail. There is that much to see.
and don't even try to squeeze in the on-base hangar visit if you plan on only a day....
I had a few hours to run over there after an on-base meeting, it was like being teased.
Saw some awfully low flying jets over a grassy part of the airfield, took a minute to realize they were big, kero-burning honest-to-god turbine-powered models.
I was at Wright-Pat for the Doolittle Reunion this year. I was stationed at Lockbourne AFB in Columbus back in the day.
There is one of these standing gate guard over at the old Kelly AFB main gate road. Doesn't look at shiny and clean as this one, though.
My contribution to the thread. Caught this guy flying over a model airplane event I was at this weekend.

P.S. How about model airplane pics? Or is thread for full scale stuff only?
Spotted these at Ft Worth Spinks Airport a few days ago. Oh how I wish I had my good camera with me at the time.....
Can anyone ID them?
