KLM futuristic Airplane
KLM WB-1010 promises to revolutionize flight travel in 85 years.
Designer Reindy Allendra has envisioned a brilliant new aircraft that, if proven flight-worthy, could revolutionize travel. Inspired by a blue whale, the KLM WB-1010 looks like a giant blimp with supersonic engines in the back. Capable of carrying 1500 people at a max speed of 620mph, the futuristic aircraft comes with “smart glass” windows and a helium-injected body to maintain a light weight factor.
The WB-1010 (stands for Wright Brothers) is an official entry into the current KLM Indonesia aircraft design competition. It’s purely a concept plane using technology that might be feasible in the future, but still doesn’t exist.
The theme of the competition was to design an aircraft that could be used 85 years from now. Reindy Allendra feel that overpopulation would be the biggest problem of the world in the next 85 years later. He design the WB-1010 airplane to overcome the problem.
This giant plane’s body will be made of a material similar to the GLARE material used in Airbus A380s, with helium gas injected inside the body to make the airplane lighter. The aircraft will also mainly rely on conventional fuel as the main energy source.
A robotic extractable stand at the plane’s belly will help the plane during landing, and working in conjunction with a super jet, the WB-1010 will be able to land vertically, without the need for a runway, reducing infrastructural demands that a traditional airport would require.

We really like this concepts.
Looks like something that might happen.
Not sure about helium injected body.
