With the airplane he invented the Frenchman Alain Weber will try to cross the EnglishCanal. The fuselage and wings are made of special lead boards to protect him against a possible nuclear attack and cosmic rays which can be dangerous for the super-sensitive and ultra-sophisticated flight equipment.
The pilot says that his “Rapido” airplane can reach a speed of Mach 3 in no more than eight seconds. Its ultramodern curved design causes a maximum reduction of friction, the cause of speed loss in other airplanes.
He also explains to us that the rounded form of his construction is perfectly adapted so as to be able to reach supersonic speeds. The numerous nails that support the structure are strategic-energetic points that provide the power needed to develop the desired performance.
