Nope. .. How is this such a "nope" thing? Airplanes are often repaired with aluminum tape. Yes, tape. lol Planes nope

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
User avatar #61 to #49 - futapirate (07/12/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #70 to #61 - fonestig ONLINE (07/12/2014) [-]
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
User avatar #71 to #70 - futapirate (07/12/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #101 to #71 - allamericandude (07/12/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #103 to #101 - futapirate (07/13/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #104 to #103 - allamericandude (07/13/2014) [-]
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.
#81 to #9 - anon (07/12/2014) [-]
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

could work in a plane that has no cargo bay but not in a commercial airplane

User avatar #31 to #3 - itsmewaffle ONLINE (07/12/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #62 to #3 - penileburglar (07/12/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #92 to #3 - greendroid (07/12/2014) [-]
Yes. Tape.
Tape thats made out of ******* aluminum.

(That's reflective tape)
#23 to #3 - eezo (07/11/2014) [-]
That's Duct Tape

Also known as "100 MPH tape" in some circles

it was deigned to be use in extreme conditions
#35 to #3 - alexanderh (07/12/2014) [-]
Duct tape is universally useful. For example, the Lunar rover was repaired using duct tape during apollo 11 (I believe).
#18 to #3 - profkitty ONLINE (07/11/2014) [-]
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.

I'm choosing to comment this as anonymous because fj hates hearing the truth.


It is impossible for a plane to have a glass floor for 2 reasons
1. Glass can and will break. No matter how thick giggity the glass is.
2. Airplanes are made out of flexible materials and glass is not a flexible material
#86 to #85 - ustintheone has deleted their comment [-]
#91 to #85 - bazda (07/12/2014) [-]
Not only that, but in order for the glass to be thick enough to have the strength required to be realistic, it would add a ******** of weight to the plane.
User avatar #44 - konradkurze (07/12/2014) [-]
theres two kinds of people in the world

badasses who would fly the **** out of this plane.....and casuals who shut the window flap and pretend they arent flying

Hey, don't call them casuals.

I'm a pilot and I shut the window flap all the time.

It was supposed to be a joke, but it sounded better in my head.

Anyway, you'd be surprised at the number of pilots who are scared of heights.

It was a joke by the company. It would never work for a couple of reasons. In short, thermal expansion of glass, location of cargo bay, weight, heat transfer and structural integrity.
User avatar #13 - shekoru (07/11/2014) [-]
As a pilot/aviation enthusiast i would ******* love to get that airplane. I would kill someone for an isle seat. Like **** your bladder problems. I'm gonna sit here and watch us go 500mph.

That can't be real. Can it? I mean, glass is so brittle and weak (in terms of what an airplane does).
User avatar #97 to #88 - prozach (07/12/2014) [-]
no it cant, the cargo goes under the passenger not only for convenience but for safety what do you want to land on your bag or your own neck, the bags are under the pax in the event of a crash the bags hit first
User avatar #93 to #88 - greendroid (07/12/2014) [-]
Obviously it is reinforced glass...
User avatar #94 to #93 - mikemeiers (07/12/2014) [-]
I still don't think so. Glass has no malleability (when at room temp) and doesn't bend or twist to conform to the rapid vibrations during take off. Reinforced glass is meant to stop bullets and what not, but not be rattled. I just can't see it working, or being practical.
User avatar #95 to #94 - kaput (07/12/2014) [-]
cant They use the same as for the pilots? huhu
User avatar #100 to #95 - mikemeiers (07/12/2014) [-]
The cockpits glass frames are rather small, and in sections. Not like a cars window. The long underbelly of glass is too coherent to be structurally sound.
User avatar #102 to #93 - yonyon (07/12/2014) [-]
Still, glass does not have suitable properties for aerospace applications. From a structural point of view, windows are retarded.

ive held spiders and picked them up and not been bit

all they do is sit in the corners in my house
