Russian Ukrainian aviation engineer Tatarenko Vladimir Nikolaevich has unveiled a new design for an airplane that might just make surviving an air crash a possibility. Nikolaevich’s design consist of a detachable cabin that could be ejected at any time during take off, mid-flight or landing and allow the passengers to land safely. Parachutes will be attached to the roof of the cabin that would be released when the cabin is detached from the plane. To make the impact of the landing softer, there would be rubber tubes that would inflate and cushion the impact. The inflatable tubes can also keep the cabin afloat in case of a water landing. The prototype also includes storage space designed to hold luggage under the cabin, so that passengers wouldn’t lose any of their personal belongings.
