Why are aircraft windows round? Why do airplanes have curved wing tips? Why do passengers always board planes from the left side?

Everything connected with aircrafts is well-planned and thought out. Perhaps it’s the main reason why a plane is the safest way to travel.

GIGGAG will answer the 8 most popular questions about airplanes.

3. Why Are Some Airplanes Oddly Shaped?

You’ve probably heard about an aircraft that is also called a stealth aircraft. It’s oddly shaped for one simple reason: its shape makes it less visible to radar, sonar, infrared, and other detection methods. What’s more, it allows the aircraft to carry more luggage and consume less fuel.

The aircrafts’ shape was inspired by birds. Predatory birds use this position to increase their flight range and become less visible.

Such aircrafts are too expensive so they aren’t used in civil aviation.
