Airbus Bird of Prey Aircraft Concept

Standard aircraft already mimic some avian characteristics, but Airbus' "Bird of Prey" concept takes biomimicry further than ever before. The blended wing-to-fuselage joint of the hybrid-electric, turbo-propeller aircraft is based on the aerodynamic back arch of an eagle or falcon. Meanwhile, individually-controlled "feathers" at the tips of the wings and tail provide active flight control, making the regional flights the design is meant for even more efficient. The concept was revealed at the Royal International Air Tattoo air show but is meant more as an inspiration for future engineers than as a future production model.
