As soon as 2030, we might be flying in a new, more efficient aircraft with long, curled wings, a U-shaped tail, and a lightweight body — if manufacturer Airbus develops the “fantasy plane” it unveiled today at the Farnborough Airshow in the UK. The concept aircraft is more fuel efficient, boasts advanced interior systems, and, best of all, it’s quieter.

Bit more interesting than endless tweaking of the A300.

Cheers, Woody

From the remains of some old topics:

[quote author=pometablava]From Spanish science magazine Conocer (1992 I think). It could be a translation from French Magazine Science et vie

1. Airbus flying wing from 1987. This design was compared against the A310 but it seems that no advantages were found because all Airbus airliners share the same configuration. Personally, I find this design extremely beautiful.
A couple of Lockheed spanloader cargo designs on the background.
I have found the grandfather of the project
Stuck on the drawing board. Richard Payne. Tempus. ISBN 0 7524 3172 2
This book is really cool!

2. Airbus early 380 configuration.

I have read this article in 1992, in Serbocroatian translation, I'll try to dig up the larger picture. There were 5 different subsonic designs presented, including one variant of the flying wing

And here they are, these are from an online archive of the now defunct Galaksija popular science magazine.

The early impression of Airbus Beluga and the actually built aircraft.

Anyone ever come across a four- or three-engined A320 (or 318, 319, 321) proposal?

I've come across a mention of these in a 1983 BAe brochure on the VC10.

Thanks

Chrs

Careful, please !
I cannot see any clue, that this is an Airbus design, but there's a prominent question mark !
The picture shows a quite simple CGI and the cockpit section and tail shape reminds me
much more to the BAC 1-11, than to an Airbus design.
The presentation stems from the "Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften Hamburg",
a university in Hamburg and comes to the conclusion, that the BWB is the best solution for
a future transport/airliner. No direct relation to Airbus, or another aircraft manufacturer is
mentioned, so to my opinion, that picture is just an illustration of alternatives to current designs.
