well, you know, the glass goes through the Gas tank, so there would not be any gas.

So. You know.
Spending tons of money on a plane ticket.
Now useless.

How is that relevant?

Airplanes are exponentially safer to travel in than cars. Even if it were true that they were regularly repaired with tape, whatever they repair it with obviously works, so who gives a ****?

It's a 'nope' because people who are afraid of heights generally find it easier to forget how high up they are when the floor is, y'know, *NOT* made of glass.

That's Duct Tape

Also known as "100 MPH tape" in some circles


it was deigned to be use in extreme conditions

Duct tape is universally useful. For example, the Lunar rover was repaired using duct tape during apollo 11 (I believe).

If anything it's either reflective tape or more likely speed tape, tape specially designed for the conditions a plane with face, wind, water, etc. It is used only on minor NONimportant sections of the plane only otherwise they can face charges.
Zaxplab, get your ******* facts straight before posting ****.

This is pretty poorly shopped. The glass is where the landing gear bays should be. Plus it's not even on straight.

up top above the passengers I'm not saying it is real i do think that this concept is possible

You're ******* retarded if you think the seats can be that close to the bottom of the plane and have the whole thing be structurally sound.

why not? the cargo bay is already hollow so why can't seats be there. planes already have windows so the clear material is strong enough. put a couple or more than 2 steel ribs for support

Alright, I'm not going to pretend to be an expert on aerospace engineering, but I'm pretty sure there's a reason all the windows on planes are tiny.
Also, I can't imagine that there would be no issues with swapping the cargo bay and the seating area.
Of course, I'm talking out of my ass.

I can pretend to be an expert on aerospace engineering (because that's why I'm in college), and the reason why plane windows are small are a) they have to fit between the ribs of the fuselage and b) they are a structural weakness.

And it doesn't make a whole lot of difference whether the passengers are up top or down below. Weight is weight regardless of whether it's alive or inanimate. There might be some roll stability issues, but tubular fuselages keep everything near the vertical center of gravity anyway, so it would likely be negligible. But the reason why they put passengers in the middle is simply because that's the widest part of the fuselage. Also, there's lots of messy bits down below like landing gear, wiring, hydraulics, etc.

So, as you said, the windows are a structural weakness. Thus, you wouldn't want a giant one covering the entire bottom of the plane.

Nope, probably not. But never say never, because with the right materials and design it could be possible.

As someone who is afraid of heights, i'd ride that **** all the way around the world twice. Heights is my only phobia and I get off on the adrenaline rush I feel when I look down from a cliff. That fear of falling is so terrifying that my body goes into fight or flight mode and I force myself to stand there, the adrenaline kicks in, preppeing my body to run like hell and I love every second of it.

yeah, I'm also afraid of heights, to the point where I'm prone to multiple panic attacks (serious ones, not that tumblr ********) on flights as short as two hours. I wouldn't sit in that plane without at least 12 parachutes at my disposal
