A detachable plane cabin doesn’t sound safe but in actual fact, it could be a lot safer than the current design of an average commercial aeroplane.
Engineer Tatarenki Vladimir Nikolaevich has been working on the design for three years and has created a prototype that consists of a detachable cabin (or capsule container) that can be ejected at any point in the flight — from takeoff to landing.
Vladimir Tatarenko unveiled the patented concept, and told LiveLeak, “While aircraft engineers all over the world are trying to make planes safer, they can do nothing about the human factor”.
The demonstration shows how the cabin can detach at any time throughout the flight, including takeoff and landing, and, with the help of parachutes, safely land on water or ground.
And your luggage would be safe too – the capsule would include the undercarriage of the plane.
