I was just reading about Boeing's "new" "Blended Wing Body" or BWB jet. The plane is one massive wing, reducing crag, and thereby increasing fuel efficency. Since the entire surface is a lifting body, the plane cuts through the air more efficently.

I know that the flying wing form factor has been attempted before, and there were problems with stability under certain circumstances. I hope that these engineers can get this new design to overcome these issues that existed in the past and get this plane up there. It is more fuel efficient than an Airbus A380-700, and would weigh around 19 percent less.
