A French entrepreneur designed an airplane with removable wings that turns into a train.Link & Fly, Akka Technologies’s new flagship aircraft with detachable wings, that passengers would board the train-like tube at a neighborhood station.
In terms of dimensions, the aircraft is comparable with the Airbus A320: the wingspan of the aircraft is 49 meters, the length is 34 meters, and the height is 8 meters. The aircraft can accommodate 160 passengers.
With Akka’s futuristic concept, passengers would board a train-like tube at a neighbourhood station and have their retinas scanned for security during the ride to the airport.
Wings would then be attached to the pod for take-off.The Link & Fly Aircraft/Flying Train can carry cargo with a maximum payload of 21,000 kg. With engines mounted on a large delta-shaped wing, the craft is envisioned with a range of 2,200 km.
