A Sky Whale sounds like science fiction, but it could be a reality:

“Sky Whale” is a concept aircraft created by Spanish designer Oscar Viñals that uses technological innovation to make air travel more efficient and ultimately, eco-friendly. A key aspect of the aircraft’s success would rely on the development of advanced new materials such as next-generation ceramic and fiber composites. It would also be equipped with “active wings” that are powered by a hybrid turbo-electric propulsion system that significantly increases efficiency. The effect of all the technology according to Viñals, would be reduced drag, fuel consumption and weight, making it one of the “greenest aircraft imaginable.”
