The aerospace engineering team is working on a new airplane model that might change air travel for good
Dutch airliner company KLM is contributing to the research of this new airplane prototype that is being constructed at the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft).
The first prototype of this plane was conceptualized by TU Berlin student, Justus Benad
Justus created the concept for his project regarding potential aircraft designs for the future.
The aircraft is named after the iconic Gibson flying-v electric guitar
Iconic artists like Jimi Hendrix, Brian May, and Keith Richards used to play it.
It is believed that the plane would burn up to 20% less fuel
Which is a very important environmental factor considering current aviation contributes to around 2.5 percent of global CO2 emissions.
The first test flight is expected to happen this September and the actual plane should be released around the year 2040
The plane will be able to carry 314 passengers and they will be seated in the wings along with fuel tanks and cargo.
