Seen Any of These Greenliners Lately ?

Probably not because European engineers working on the passenger plane of the future are reaching back into Canada's aviation history and focusing on an aircraft reminiscent of a flying saucer-style design tested in the 1950s by a Toronto-area firm.

The engineers working on this green flying saucer concept are focusing on remaking the notion of an aircraft,
I want to get rid of the image of a cylindrical body with wings, said Etnel Straatsma of Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands.

Straatsma heads the recently-formed CleanEra project, which aims to design an ultra-eco-friendly plane that releases 50 percent less carbon dioxide per passenger-mile than current airliners. The project's "greenliner"—depicted in design illustrations as a flying saucer—would also reduce other pollutants and noise, in line with recommendations from the European Aerospace Commission, ACARE.
