For those of you who haven’t yet seen The Future by Airbus, a download of their 14 page PDF presentation is available here: The Future by Airbus.  One example future concept, with a U-Shaped tail, is shown below.

Looking ahead 40 years is always interesting.  The one thing for certain – our technologies will be better, and aircraft will continue to improve.  Remember, 40 years ago the 747 was just coming into service, and the first energy crisis that resulted from Nixon’s change in the gold standard for international settlements, hadn’t yet occurred.

Hopefully, we can all take another look at this 40 years from now and see how close Airbus was in their predictions.
