Airbus announces see-through plane for 2050

LONDON

/*Airbus*/ says it's creating a jet that will be transparent on every level, giving passengers panoramic views. The jet's structure is modeled on that of a bird, with a membrane-like "skin" that regulates temperature.

Instead of a class system of first, business and coach, the plane will be divided into different zones for people who want to work and people who want to relax. There's even a gaming area.

Plus, thermal energy from the passengers themselves will power the lights and in-flight entertainment systems.

But you won't be able to book your tickets just yet. Airbus says its see-through jet won't be in the air until 2050.
