Be Amazed at these reasons for why planes look like the way they do! From Edgy to Rounded - It was May 2,1953. A de Havilland Comet jetliner had just left Calcutta when reports came in about its status. A Curve at the Tip - Aviation 101 says that lift is produced by a plane due a difference in pressure between the air above and below its wings. The Adjustable Nose - Airplanes usually have different nose designs depending on their designed maximum speed. Double-Decking Bonus - When it comes to size, nothing beats the basic design of a double-decker aircraft.

Always the Left Door - Another simple question that’s never usually mentioned is why planes are always designed to have doors on the left side. Giant Boomerangs - The all familiar fuselage plus wings and engine design has been the staple for airplanes for decades. The Biggest Possible Tube - Let’s dive straight into the question. Is there a limit to fuselage size? It turns out actually, that there is no defined limit as of yet when it comes to fuselage size. Turboprops, Ramjets and Scramjets - The jet engine stands today as one of the most commonly used type of engine designed for aircraft. No More Runways - Aircraft, as engineering marvels of the 20th century they may be, are still largely limited by one very important weakness: the need for runways.
