      Yes it's a Scaled Composites aircraft and Howitzer, do you even brain? It's not like they just slap these things together without years of testing and design...
      When you go to the bathroom there are so many things that could also go wrong, but do they?

      It's roughly two planes, which means twice the things to worry about.

      With control surfaces that large, wind for sure is going to be a problem. Especially when landing, as that middle wing could flex and the landing gear of one fuselage will be at a different height/angle than the other. And if the middle wing is flexing, that means the control surfaces on each fuselage could be at different angles in relation to each other.

      And if you say that wing doesn't bend, it's poor design as wings need to bend, or they'll snap.

      Just a reminder that even with years of testing, everything will still have its flaws. And it's impossible to make anything completely flawless.

      Firstly, I used to be a pilot, not a commercial airliner but I've been around planes probably longer than you've been alive, I know far better than you how the structure of an aircraft works.
      Next, control surfaces vs wind? What? You do know that aircraft CAN land one foot in front of the other, right?

      And no, the Stratolifter is NOT two aircraft strapped together, it's a single aircraft. That's like saying a Catamaran is two different boats because it has two hulls, or the Fokker DR.1 is three planes...

      First it was filmmaking, now it's aircraft design... I'm going to have to sit you down for a LONG chat.
