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.

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

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)

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.

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.

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.

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.

...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...)

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.

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.

No, it's fake, look it up. The TV screen idea seems logical, but this is described as a plane with a "glass floor"

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.
