Here is an old but fun flash applet, I used to love it when I was young, and when I stumbled upon it again recently I just new you all would love it.

www.desktopaero.com...



Try your hand at the design of a 200 passenger airliner,
flying from Washington D.C. to the destination of your choice.


You may modify the airplane's wings, tails, engine, fuselage,
and cruise settings by clicking on the small pictures above.
Then click on the image in the upper right to analyze and
display your design.


This applet allows you to create thousands of different and diverse aircraft designs and analyzes them for problems and gives suggestions if it finds any. You can even take a screenshot of your designs. When it is finished, press the "prnt screen" key on your keyboard, it should be right above or near your "backspace" key. Next, open a new mspaint document and press "ctrl " and "v", this pastes your picture. You can save the image (preferably as a JPEG) and post it here.

Here is my first attempt:




WING SWEEP: 40°
WING AREA: 3000 square feet
WING ASPECT RATIO: 6
WING SPAN: 134 feet

TAIL TYPE: conventional
TAIL AREA: 20%
TAIL ASPECT RATIO: 4

ENGINE TYPE: turbofan
ENGINE LAYOUT: 2 aft engines
ENGINE THRUST (TOTAL): about 85,000 pounds

SEATING LAYOUT: 3/3

CRUISE SPEED: 531 knots (mach 0.92)
CRUISE ALTITUDE: 36,000 feet
FUEL CAPACITY: 75,000 lbs

DESTINATION: London

This little thing has postponed me going to bed for at least a quarter of an hour. Will post something when I have the hang of it.

**UPDATE**

They have completely redesigned their website. It more or less works exactly the same but its appearence is much more modern.

174.120.241.105...



It's a shame though, that they redesigned everything except the model.
