Being developed at Long Beach , California, the blended wing fuselage challenge to the Airbus A380 , is designed to carry 1000 passengers at a cruising speed of 654 mph with a range of 10,000 miles. It has a wingspan of 265ft, 54ft more than the 747. Already it has been dubbed the Airbus Crusher and is made from recycled coathangers . In aeronautical terms it is a hoax .
This interesting story provided by former high flying Adelaide antique and pre loved coffin dealer, Alan Jones, who can make fabulous model aeroplanes out of coathangers and is now seen dashing about like Biggles at Irish auctions and mixing with flying and fleeing nuns.
