The lift looks amazing. Slightly small (funny to see more than one person in it at one time Big grin) It would be interesting to see it built into the plane but I imagine that may add more weight to it.

P.S I would love to enter a plane through a lift like that ( very futuristic  Cool )

I think you were referring to them being use ON airplanes to get from one level to another, right? (B744, A346, A380?)

I could see a lighter/non-transparent version for a service elevator made out of composites that would be light enough. The polycarbonate version shown could be used for a cool passenger lift between passneger levels but at a higher weight than conventional aircraft elevators. The system seems much more simple than the elevators on the L1011 and DC-10. So I think that mtc would be less of an issue. Cool idea though. Wish I could afford one for the house. Maybe a homemade version? Hmmmm.

Grude, yes, I was thinking of the AN-124 and -225 as example. More for use
on cargo-haulers?
