Caption: D8 future aircraft. Computer artwork of the D8 'dubble bubble' concept aircraft. This passenger aircraft was designed for domestic flights by a team led by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It is based on a modified tube and wing with a very wide fuselage to provide extra lift, while its low sweep wing reduces drag and weight. It was presented to the NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate in April 2010, for its NASA Research Announcement-funded studies into advanced aircraft that could enter service in the 2030-2035 timeframe.
