Flying Bi-Wing

This is a concept of a super safe green way to fly. The lower wing is the fuel tank and the upper wing is engines, passengers, crew and cargo. In case of engine failure the 'wing booms' lock upright and the upper wing detaches from the lower wing. A robot pilot glides the lower wing into a landing with a deployed para-wing.

You have such diverse talents - even designing new versions of flight now - engineer, painter, storyteller and a great grandpa !!! - and I always love the description of yourself.

To Joan

Being a good Grandfather is what I more than anything now.

I have hundreds of these Green Dreams and I never do anything except throw the drawings in a drawer. I've decided to start posting these drawings on this blog.

Thanks for the comments.
