• When I look at the blended wing design, especially in comparison with the other designs and in proportion to the cockpit windows, I think that must be a sub scale concept demonstrator rather than a full scale aircraft. I'd imagine that one would fit 20-30 pax on board, not 200 that the text sugge...
