Airbus unveils new 'bird of prey' concept plane
(CNN) - European manufacturer Airbus has created a concept aircraft inspired by the natural features of eagles, hawks and other aerial predators. The "Bird of Prey" concept was unveiled by Liam Fox, UK Secretary of State for International Trade, at the Royal International Air Tattoo air show on Friday. Fox tweeted his support for the project alongside a video of the "Bird of Prey," which has a set of feathers on the tail and each wingtip. "Inspired by efficient mechanics of a bird, it has wing and tail structures that mimic those of a bird of prey, while featuring individually controlled feathers that provide active flight control," the statement reads. Airbus has also been involved in developing new aircraft seat designs.
