Please, not over New Zealand

If you are scared of travelling by plane, then fear no more. Say goodbye to butterflies in the stomach every time you enter an airplane. At least that is what Tatarenko Vladimir proposes with his aircraft safety system. The first version of his project, which was based on a capsule that would be released through a rear hatch at the tail end of the plane in case of emergency, seemed unfeasible due to the weight and received a lot of criticism.

The new project counts with a cabin what would detach itself completely from the plane, saving everyone onboard.
