[design] airplane architecture

wondering if anyone else had a foreboding
feeling regarding seeing the unveiling of
the new giant Airbus airplane... thought
it may be mentioned by now that, besides
the aesthetics of the plane, that it has
an eerie quality of 'titanic' grandeur,
which leads to the testing of airplanes
that fly into buildings-- could such a
plane's impact be stopped by a building
if it was loaded with fuel, or is this
like the unveiling of a new WMD missile.
it has little/nothing to do with Airbus,
more to do with airplane design and 9/11
and dual-purposes. though like with other
'supersized' things (dinosaurs), it seems
a habitat/environment needs to exist that
can support them. the design is curious.
