Caption

An aircraft access door made from a glass fibre composite material. Glass fibre and carbon fibre composites are finding increasing use in aircraft construction. Used in non-structural areas (due to their poor tensile strength), they may be used to provide substantial weight savings over conventional metal panels. This drop in weight translates into fuel savings, a powerful motivating force for modern airlines.
