Aerion Spike S-512 to introduce wrap around windows


The Aerion Spike S-152 supersonic business jet company blog describes one of the cabin features, a "thin display screen" that's embedded in the wall. Cameras mounted around the jet's exterior will power a panoramic view, which can also be swapped for other images or content that's more conductive to sleep, such as a solid dark color or a starry night scene. Removing the windows helps Spike trim the plane's weight while also reducing drag, enabling faster speeds and boosted fuel efficiency.  First flight is scheduled to take place in 2018.
