Airplane that could revolutionise air flights

Dutch airline KLM announced it will finance a new aeronautical project that could change the aviation industry.
It’s a new V-shaped aircraft, created by experts from the Technical University of Delft, the Netherlands, and financially supported by KLM.

“Flying-V” can carry up to 314 passengers and was named after the famous Gibson Flying-V electric guitar, used by artists such as Eddie Van Halen or Jimi Hendrix.

Creators say that due to the unique configuration, the new aircraft uses 20% less fuel than the classic planes, so they will considerably reduce carbon monoxide emissions. The wings could accommodate passengers, cargo and other loads.

The size of the new airplane is similar to an Airbus A350 or Boeing 787 and could use existing gates, hangars and tracks.
