RE: Airbus London To NY In One Hour

The design seems pretty rudimentary to me - and so general in concept that I'm surprised they are able to patent it. At this point I think Airbus is just covering their bases in terms of patent law. It's proven very difficult to know what can evolve technologically in 10, 15 or 20 years. I would thi...
