"Captain? I think we may have gone a bit higher than our flight plan said..."

It's all fine and dandy until you hit a bird.

Wake me when this exists, and isn't just a photoshop.

A see-through floor would also be cool.

It would freak nervous flyers out.

Maybe if you program it to display scenes from a train it might calm nervous flyers.

Lack of emergency exits seems like a dubious feature.

I would definitely shat myself if a majority of the aircraft became "transparent".

well that would make joing the mile high club even better.

Design teams don't build.

Now we know why superman vs Batman was pushed back, wonder woman was added and they were waiting for this to be ready for filming

If they could actually do this, that would admittedly be pretty damn badass.

They didn't build a damn thing, subby.

Been done.

So when you start nose-diving toward the ground, you can be even *more* terrified?

I'd rather look out a window and see reality for myself.

this is no different than looking at a tv screen at home, might as well sit on the couch with a go pro feed on the shuttle.

Wow someone designed star tours with an airline....

guess this would make Malaysian airlines the scary rides?

I get irritated when the person at the end of the row leaves then window open in flight when the window is facing the sun.  I can't imagine I'd be entirely comfortable with the sun shining in through the entire plane.

Can't wait until the first functional aircraft in service is hacked with visuals of incoming surface-to-air missiles.

Perspective will be wrong anyway.
