Sit on top of the plane when flying on holiday

14 December 2015

Like flying? Have a bit of money knocking about? Well, soon enough, you might be able to do one-better than poxy First Class, as you'll be able to sit in a bubble on top of the plane, like you're in a low-rent (but excellent) sci-fi b-movie.

Let us introduce to you, SkyDeck, which allows wealthy passengers the chance to get ‘an exhilarating view of the aircraft’s external environment while in flight.’

Have a look at this video, and enjoy the gentle '80s prog soundtrack.

This is the brainchild of Windspeed Technologies, who want to court the wallets of VIPs. If you purchase their pod from them, you can choose between some stairs to access it, or, a fancy lift. You can choose between a one-seater and a two-seater too (depends on how much you like sharing, compared to how much you like feeling exclusive and lofty, you'd imagine).

The patent for this design is currently pending, so don't get too excited if you're thinking of putting this on your private jet (or on top of your Nissan Micra).

Oh, and it'll cost you somewhere between £5.34m and £16.6m. So don't expect RyanAir to have these installed any time soon
