    I hope Trump doesn't see that.....then he'll insist on replacing Air Force One with it for his weekly golfing trips to Mar-A- Lago.

    Why aren't the two tail sections connected? If this beast has two functioning cockpits they're going to need a Chief Pilot somewhere in the center to mediate all the "discussions" between flight crews :)

    Now muslims can hijack one plane and fly into two adjacent buildings at the same time.

    First time the Pilot on the right side want's to make a right hand turn and the other pilot want's to go left, that will be the end of it...disaster waiting to happen...

    That is a terrible bit of engineering - lol.

    Can anyone see the major flaw yet?

    I would like to know what they used for that center “wing” section. It must be some of the strongest stuff around to be able to support payload and contain the thrust of all those engines.

    Kevlar and Carbon Fiber can support a lot of weight. I have been in the R/C hobby for over 40 years, I use Kevlar and CF on structural weak points and if there is a crash the Kevlar and CF never break its the surrounding structure that breaks.
