Default Planes of the Future! 2025..

Quote:
NASA has taken the wraps off three concept designs for quiet, energy efficient aircraft that could potentially be ready to fly as soon as 2025, joining these planes of the future (and these). The designs come from Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and The Boeing Company. In the final months of 2010, each of these companies won a contract from NASA to research and test their concepts during 2011.

According to NASA: "Each design has to fly up to 85 percent of the speed of sound; cover a range of approximately 7,000 miles; and carry between 50,000 and 100,000 pounds of payload, either passengers or cargo. For the rest of this year, each team will be exploring, testing, simulating, keeping and discarding innovations and technologies to make their design a winner."

The design kinda made it somehow impossible/HARD to built. Don't you think? *pokes Japan Airlines Concept*

A flying saucer and flying cars! How I always imagined the future, lol.

They all look like something from a sci-fi movie.

They say 2025, but when it becomes that year or even earlier, it may never happen and be scrapped.
Planes that travel the speed of sound safely with much room for passengers sounds like a great upgrade; long travel times will be a thing of the past.

I think the major innovation will be the sound of the aircraft being lowered from 130 dB (rock concert level) all the way down to 60 dB (conversational level). That would be so nice.

That was made many years ago. Maybe not with "much room", but it'd be enough for me. The first Concorde was introduced in 1976 and retired in 2003. It had a speed of Mach 2, which is about 1522mph or 2450km/h.
Spoiler!

There's a 5% chance that it's the same plane since there was only 20 made. But they are both pictures of Concorde's 8D
