Re: 2074: Airplanes and Spaceships

The design of modern airliners, based on Boeing's 367-80 prototype,
is older than airplanes were when this prototype flew the first time:

1903...Wrights' first powered flight
1954...Boeing's 367-80 first flight

In other words: airliner design has not changed significantly since 1954.
