The Burnelli Web Site
Welcome to the aircraft safety & suppressed technology web

For decades the FAA has certified airliners as being airworthy but most of them haven't been crashworthy. Today's cars are designed to protect people in case of a crash­­today's airplanes are not. In fact, the fuselage is the weakest portion of the entire vehicle.
Throughout this web-site, especially in the "Problems" section, you will find many pictures of crashes showing just how fragile airplane fuselages are. Two of the most glaring examples are the fuslages of both a DC-8 and DC-9 breaking in half during a hard landing. The landing gear did not collapse yet the fuselage was weak enough to break under a relatively mild shock. The Aloha Airlines' BOEING 737 whose top simply peeled off, was a perfect example of the flimsy construction of aircraft. The recent Ethiopian Airlines' BOEING 767 fuselage which broke up during an emergency "water-landing" (in a relatively calm surf) is but a further example that aircraft are not built to withstand any kind of shock.

The modern airliner is a patchwork of compromises and stopgap remedies:
The large tubular fuselage requires small wings in order to provide commercial cruising speeds. The small wings demand excessively high takeoff speeds in excess of 160 mph, ­­a recipe for disaster. Have you ever seen a house or a boat or a car whose fuel tank was placed above the fire source? Now, the newer airliners have fuel tanks in the horizontal tail so the passengers are surrounded by fuel with no adequate structural protection.

Today's airliners are simply derivatives of the wrongly designed early planes.Where the safety features were ignored for commercial and political reasons. The principles of flight in many cases have been forgotten, ignored or subverted.

The sane alternative to all of these has existed since 1921. Why hasn't it been implemented? Review the Burnelli technology and go to our FEEDBACK section -- to confront those who have conspired to keep you traveling in "flying tombs".

Here are some of the reasons why modern airplanes are not crashworthy

The fuselage contains only 10-15% of the airplane's structure.

Fuel is placed under passenger seats or in close proximity thereto.

The engines and landing gear are attached to fuel tank supporting structure which virtually guarantees a fire in even minor crashes. Post crash fires are the largest killers.

The seats are connected to tertiary structure and in the event of a crash they often disconnect.

The seat belts are attached to the seats instead of being attached to the main structure of the plane.
