WATCH: Would you want to fly in this new windowless airplane?


Cape Town - An United Kingdom-based air travel innovation company, the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), has launched an idea to build a new windowless airplane in which travellers would be able to see exactly what's on the outside of the aircraft. 

If all goes well, CPI aims to have the plane soaring in about 10 years' time, which seem to be too soon for some nervous flyers!

The idea has been met with plenty of criticism regarding the reality and probability of it, and most travellers are rather terrified by the idea. There are, however, a few adventurous optimists who are excited about being able to see above the clouds. 

YES?



NO!



Although we must admin that the views would be spectacular (even regardless the weather), we would rather not try to imagine the severe cases of motion illness or vertigo sensitive travellers might experience...
