Whale of a time in the sky

FRENCH design dynamo Jean-Marie Massaud has created a Manned Cloud.

A cruise airship with a hotel for 40 passengers and 15 staff, Massaud worked with the Office National d’Etudes et de Recherche Aérospatiale in this proposal.

The design is based on the way whales swim and hence has some resemblance to a very large white whale.

The pure concept involves travel that is so quiet that the surrounding world does not realize that the Manned Cloud has passed by.
