its not real....plane needs and has cargo under plane and multiple safety features and sensors that are critical to a safe flight. above 10 thousand feet the glass would have to be too thick making it un-eficent to make the glass thicker..im studying structural engineering

The cargo bay could be on top. and why can't you use the same material as the windshield and have supports every few feet? It's possible I think. but not this pic obviously.
User avatar #12 to #11 - kamranhalo (04/04/2013) [-]
cargo bay on top would make the plane top heavy and hard to land ... the windshield is small and is needed to have visual reference and in case of full aviation malfunction....
having the floor made of glass would just make it difficult for some first time flyers or people afraid of heights to walk around the cabin....plane companies would lose money having the cabin lower reducing the number of seats in dangering of the passengers.... imagine a 600 pound golfer with cleats on ...that plus the pressue of the outside air and the cabin pressure could kill everyone on board

*slow clap* This guy knows his **** . At first I was like, "Really? You're gonna be that guy?" Then I continued reading and I was like, "Cool"
User avatar #16 to #14 - kamranhalo (04/04/2013) [-]
airplane windows have two layers one soft one inside and a thick part outside...same with the windshield in the cabin....the same system with thousands of pounds ontop will quickly ruin the seals and make the cabin implode.(yes it does exist)
User avatar #19 to #16 - monkeybrains ONLINE (04/04/2013) [-]
The imploding, wasn't that also why they changed the windows for passengers from totally square to circular or rounded on the edges? I remember reading or hearing that square ones couldn't keep the pressure the same or something involving the internal and external pressures.
User avatar #20 to #19 - kamranhalo (04/04/2013) [-]
yep it spreds the force over a larger distance...that why not many plants like fruit and vegetables are square....if you have a egg and hold it from the tips with your index and thumb you wont be able to break it no matter how hard you try
User avatar #18 to #14 - kamranhalo (04/04/2013) [-]
its safer and cheaper just to put cameras and monitors instead of glass
User avatar #15 to #14 - kamranhalo (04/04/2013) [-]
thanks dude
User avatar #17 to #11 - kamranhalo (04/04/2013) [-]
its like asking why don't submarines not have any windows....they cant see below 300 meters under water and it will make it structurally unfit to be a real and effective sub
User avatar #22 to #10 - PillowRapist (04/04/2013) [-]
Uh so the windows have to be thick enough?
What about the windows then??
User avatar #31 to #22 - kamranhalo (04/04/2013) [-]
windows are small and dont need to be walked and dragged sharp baggage over
User avatar #34 to #31 - PillowRapist (04/04/2013) [-]
good enough for me
i mean, who am i to argue with someone with a structural engineering degree
#65 to #34 - anon (04/04/2013) [-]
he didn't have a degree. he was studying it.
User avatar #63 to #10 - SweetJesus (04/04/2013) [-]
lol bob sapp is awesome
#78 to #10 - anon (04/04/2013) [-]
Well, I suppose you could do something else instead, in a way similar to the "Invisible BMW" commercial.

A camera on the undercarriage of the plane projecting the image of the ground onto a "carpet" of LEDs in the floor of the plane, with a glass element over the LEDs for safety.

Well you're certainly not studying grammar

Well you don't need grammar when you can do numbers
User avatar #80 to #79 - kamranhalo (04/04/2013) [-]
i hate grammar and come on guys its not like your grammar is perfect on the internet
#88 to #80 - anon (04/04/2013) [-]
doesn't have to be perfect, we just like understanding a sentence without having to read it 3 times.
#89 to #88 - kamranhalo (04/04/2013) [-]
Well i can do that. No problem
User avatar #26 to #10 - frienderman (04/04/2013) [-]
Also, planes warp and flex in turbulence, so if it was legit glass or even a synthetic that's strong enough to withstand those pressures it'd crack.

Someone had to do this.

User avatar #32 to #30 - ariusbrightwing (04/04/2013) [-]
C'mon, really?
#33 to #32 - nockae (04/04/2013) [-]
No seriously. What?
User avatar #36 to #33 - ariusbrightwing (04/04/2013) [-]
Okay I will explain every step just for you sweetie.

This post is about the floor being made of glass, to which I thought what if the bathroom floor was also made of glass, to which I stepped outside the box and thought, what if someone was watching from down below.

I then noticed that no one had so much as pointed this out, so I opened up the ol' paint(dot)net, and decided instead of making a 4 panel comic I'd make it 6 for more room.

The rest just kind of fell into place like an 80% completed puzzle and bam, comic related to post.

It's not that I can't draw, it's that I'm too lazy, combined with a slight art block.


I do kinda suck though...

Have you got a link or anything? I highly doubt this for its structural inefficiency.

If they made a glass floor airplane, most of the passengers would just be seeing their luggage...
User avatar #74 to #71 - flybager (04/04/2013) [-]
...That actually sounds like a cool idea, though.

I'm usually paranoid about what's happening to my luggage.

(Even though it'll probably end up bein gunpractical making it so everyone's luggage is underneath their seat and you'd either end up having to wai tan extra hour forthem to puzzle everyon's luggage or you'd jsut end up sitting above someone's dildo-collection...)

Man, I'm the typo master today...

I know it's fake and glass won't work, but why not a floor made of LCD screens and cameras on the bottom of the plane?
#93 to #53 - osirusrising (04/04/2013) [-]
Actually, we can temper glass to be stronger then steal so it could work.
#67 to #53 - greatjobjimmy (04/04/2013) [-]
I don't know much about planes, but can't people just look out the window if they want to see the outside?
User avatar #72 to #67 - VincentKing ONLINE (04/04/2013) [-]
because only the window seat people can do that, everyone else is screwed.
User avatar #54 to #53 - cactusupthebutt (04/04/2013) [-]
Because they'd lose money from people not getting on. People who have vertigo and what not.
User avatar #73 to #54 - VincentKing ONLINE (04/04/2013) [-]
Pay an extra $200 for that privilege.
User avatar #58 to #54 - heafi (04/04/2013) [-]
Of course they should only do it with a few planes as a gimmick. The screens didn't even have to be on during the whole flight.
#59 to #58 - cactusupthebutt (04/04/2013) [-]
Now that you mention that....It sounds like a pretty neat idea.
User avatar #64 to #59 - yonyon (04/04/2013) [-]
Sadly, that would be way too heavy and the operating costs would go up.

I'm sure it isn't actually glass. It could be TV screens displaying the footage from cameras mounted to the hull of the plane.

Do you remember the elevator prank where the floor was actually a collection of monitors which displayed what resembled the floor falling out to simulate falling? It could very well be a similar approach.

Or totally fake.
User avatar #42 to #41 - iheartfapping (04/04/2013) [-]
No, it's fake, look it up. The TV screen idea seems logical, but this is described as a plane with a "glass floor"
User avatar #43 to #42 - inanimateobject (04/04/2013) [-]
Well, of course the concept of a glass floor is unrealistic because the generic commercial air-liner holds it's luggage in the cargo bay below the passenger deck.

This plane in the picture is a fake, but the concept of a glass-floored plane isn't.

I realize I worded both sentences in a manor that appears contradictory, but I hope you understand what I actually meant.

I know alot of the larger airplanes in service have TV screens in front of your seat that have cameras positioned behind the plane and underneath. It's pretty neat, you can watch the plan take off and get amazing views of what is below

Oh good, a glass floor. Did you know I have this phobia of heights? If I'm too high I start vomiting, a lot. Not to mention my motion sickness problem, vomiting every time I fly. So this is a great way for me to make everyone else on the flight uncomfortable and nauseous for the entire flight. BRING IT ON!
User avatar #50 to #49 - CallMeCrisco (04/04/2013) [-]
You're that one guy on the plane everyone hates, lol.

In all seriousness, sorry about that. Flying is so cool too. :<
User avatar #52 to #50 - milliardopeace (04/04/2013) [-]
No I'm the guy everyone hates on planes. I hate flying.
