The Airborne Metro Uses Nuclear Power to Cut Costs of Travel

The Airborne Metro is an ambitious travel concept designed to make flying around the world a faster and more efficient process. The Airborne Metro is essentially a gigantic flying aircraft carrier fueled by nuclear power. The aircraft would serve as a hub for jet planes which would land on its back and ride it until they get near their destination.

The Airborne Metro would be powered by nuclear fuel so that it would never have to land. The idea behind the concept is to save jet fuel on conventional aircraft by letting them hitch a ride on the metro. This would cut costs of airline travel and also help the environment out. Of course, a giant flying nuclear reactor is a disaster waiting to happen, but the concept is still cool nonetheless and could possibly become viable sometime in the future.
