Named after an electric guitar developed by Gibson in 1958, and used by several legendary players like Brian May, Keith Richards, Jimi Hendrix, and Eddie Van Halen, the unique aeronautical project, which could also beat out the use of other commercial airplanes forever, is configured to use 20 percent less fuel.

Specifically, the wing is hosting passenger’s spaces, fuel tanks, sophisticated infrastructures as well as the cargo hold. Similarly, the Flying-V plane has a total width of about 215ft (65m) and its length is slightly shorter at 180ft (55m). Its size, however, did make it a comparable rival to Boeing 787 and Airbus A350.
