    'Open Air' planes - Dream or nightmare?

    Is zipping through the skies with nothing holding you up your dream or your nightmare? Depending on your viewpoint, this news is either the best development since sliced white, or the stuff that nightmares are made of.

    A Brit company, http://www.uk-cpi.com/windowless-fuselage/#.VE7k-hbVeet is working on a 'windowless' plane. It's not really, of course. They are just planning to line the sides of the cabin, and the backs of seats, with high definition screens showing the view outside. But as far as passengers are concerned, they'll feel like they are traveling on an open platform through the clouds.

    I quick poll in my household had some really excited, and others running screaming in horror, at just the thought.

    Nightmare, there is a ride like this at California Adventure next to Disneyland. I think it's called California Screamin'. I had the end seat. I don't like to fly anyhow, and even though the scenery was beautiful, it terrified me.
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    on second thought, maybe it is so terrifying that this would make people stay in their seats and ''be good'' LOL

    No way, no way. Not in a million years. I buried my head in the car seat when we drove though the mountains.

    "California Screamin" sounds as though it might be a wild ride!!!

    The panoramic plane sounds interesting, and I agree it could be just the answer to making people stay in their seats and behave themselves. I hope they do make planes like this.

    Sounds like fun. You can always close your eyes.
