Zwilling- the new Airbus
This is Airbus “double fuselage aircraft” awarded with patent, called Zwilling, for “twin”, from the German WWII twin-fuselage aircraft.
The high-capacity airliner that combines two fuselages, will have twin forward-swept wings and extra large turboprop propulsion that reduces fuel consumption significantly.
The advantage of a twin-fuselage aircraft design is the reduction of wing bending moment which minimizes the structural weight.
