A lot of tech goes into modern airplanes, from cockpit gadgetry to the little screens that display your favorite films as your hurtling across the Atlantic in a tin tube of other people's reconstituted air. Nobody really likes flying all that much, but Virgin Atlantic's latest spoof is to create aircraft with glass-bottomed floors — allowing passengers you to see the ocean and the land from 30,000 feet.
