“This airframe noise reduction produced by NASA technology is definitely momentous, and the best part is that it directly benefits the public,” said project manager Kevin Weinert.

    ” they have developed technology to reduce the volume of landing aircraft by up to 70%” – something like a trash compactor or car crusher? don’t think passengers will be pleased….

    It’s good that it may reduce fuel costs (by improving plane efficiency), as the linked article says. Otherwise airlines (always penny-pinching) would never go for it, no matter what benefit to customers or people on the ground, right?
