The plane that can detach its entire CABIN in the event of an emergency: Concept can ‘drop’ passengers to safety using built-in parachutes
- Parachutes attached to roof and rubber tubes inflate on bottom of cabin
- Storage space holds passengers’ luggage underneath the cabin
- Previous design has a capsule released from plane’s back
Engineers have revealed a radical new way to save plane passengers in the event of an emergency.
The design shows an aircraft with a detachable cabin that releases in emergency situations.
During take-off, landing or flight, the redesigned cabin detaches from the plane and safely lands on the ground or water– saving everyone’s lives on board.
‘Surviving in a plane crash is possible,’ Vladimir Tatarenko, aviation engineer, told LiveLeak.
‘While aircraft engineers all over the world are trying to make planes safer, they can do nothing about the human factor.’
Tatarenko is that mastermind behind the design and has been working on this project for the past three years, according to Independent.
Parachutes are attached to the roof of the cabin that are instantly released when the cabin is detached from the plane.
There are also rubber tubes that inflate to cushion the impact to the ground or water, and the inflatable devices seem strong enough to keep the cabin afloat.
‘The existing technology of using of Kevlar and carbon composites for fuselage, wings, flaps, spoilers, ailerons, tail will be used during the design,’ Tatarenko explained.
‘It allows to partly
