    I had a progressive neighbor that worked in the futuristic portion at Boeing. It was their job to dream up these things & apply for patents to preclude any future issues should the company decide to go there. They came up with stuff only someone who had never worked a lot in the real world could possibly think of. The self repairing wing is really far out, we will not see that in our lifetime, if ever.

    We had a VP at the company whose claim to fame was convincing the guy who owned the patent idea for engines mounted by the tail section that there weren't going to many built & getting him to agree to a low ball figure/plane for the company's use of the idea. A lot of these little company's bought are for the patents they own.

    The guppy type airplanes are already flying.

    These huge planes look like big, fat, terrorist targets to me. What a temptation if a terrorist could take down a plane with 700 souls.
