Zwilling double fuselage aircraft, 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.
