VIDEO: Would you fly in a plane with a detachable cabin?
Inventor Vladimir Tatarenko recently unveiled the patented concept which he hopes will save lives in the event of a crash.
“Surviving a plane crash is possible. While aircraft engineers all over the world are trying to make planes safer, they can do nothing about the human factor,” he reportedly told LiveLeak.
The demonstration shows how the cabin can detach at any time throughout the flight (including take off and landing) and, with the help of parachutes, safely land on water or ground.
The cabin would also include undercarriage of the plane meaning travellers would theoretically be able to save their luggage too.
