سنيار: طرح مصمم (Alex Brady، 31 عاما من مدينة كامبريدج البريطانية) تصاميم جديدة لطائرات مستوحاة من الديناصورات خاصة الطائرة منها في العصور القديمة، مقلدا إياها في الأجنحة والشكل إجمالا.

وعلى الرغم من كون المصمم ليس متخصصا في مجال الطيران ويبدو جليا أنّه متأثر بأفلام الخيال العلمي، إلا أنّ بعض المختصين يرون في بعض من تصاميمه القدرة على الطيران، بعد تعريضها لعدد من التنقيحات والتعديلات، بحسب ديلي ميل.

إلى جانب ذلك من المتوقع أن تكون تصاميم برادي هذه أو بعض منها، مصدر إلهام لأفلام الخيال العلمي في المستقبل.

 

Alex Brady set out to create machines that look streamlined, futuristic and beautiful, but experts are not convinced that machines based on the designs would ever be able to fly. This concept is based on a swan

While he has no background in aircraft design, Mr Brady has drawn jets for films and computer games that look like they could soar though the skies on other planets and in future times. This fighter jet looks a lot like a manta ray

The '100 per cent whimsical' drawings like this plane with flexible wings, based on the shape of a swift, are also influenced by popular sci-fi films as Mr Brady, from Cambridgeshire, wanted to draw instantly recognisable craft¿ as iconic as Star Trek's Starship Enterprise

Artist Alex Brady said that he is fascinated by dinosaurs and this terrifying war machine is inspired by pterodactyl, as well as his favourite films such as Space Odyssey and Aliens

They might look like classic visions of UFOs, but these innovative aircraft concepts were inspired by jellyfish. However, an engineer told MailOnline that they would need a new propulsion system that has not been invented yet to fly

The mechanical-looking monster is based on a warthog and was imagined over a physical model built by Steve Wheeler, who made the knives for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit film and Mr Brady has worked with to illustrate ideas from his sci-fi books

This futuristic mode of transport came about beacuse of Mr Brady's attempts to draw a kind of zebra. It would be driven by a human inside the machine's stripy body

These fighter jets with distinctive curved wings are inspired by seagulls. 'They look like they might fly but are strange and silly,' Mr Brady told MailOnline

A strange vision of the future? 'The vehicle in the foreground is something along the lines of a scarab or woodlouse. The plane is rather like a manta ray,' Mr Brady said

This design shows the wings of an imaginary aircraft flexing. 'I think from this angle it looks more like a porpoise or dolphin,' Mr Brady said

While some of the futuristic aircraft concepts certainly look like they can fly, Professor Ian Poll, of Cranfield Aerospace who is an expert in aerospace engineering and a fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, is doubtful that the ideas would create a real flying machine. This rather convincing-looking fighter jet was inspired by a dragon and a chicken and look like it has jaws

These sleek looking concpet aircraft were based on a bird called the storm petrel. However, an engineering expert said: 'Birds and dinosaurs don't have jet engines or propellers to accommodate and their propulsion is limited by bone and muscle - meaning that they have to flap - which is not very efficient at all'

Mr Brady revealed that this curvy aircraft is based on a stylised painting of a swan on wall of the White Swan pub in Cambridge, showing that inspiration really is everywhere

Aeronautics expert Professor Poll said that some of the designs look as if they do have wings that integrate seamlessly the body of the aircraft, which could help them to fly. A line of forbidding fighter jets are lined up for imaginary action here, but were inspired by chickens

This futuristic aircraft looks at first glance like a marine monster, but was inspired by a small starling

This cockpit-like structure was inspired by 'how starfish puke out their insides to eat', which Mr Brady finds fascinating but disgusting

Professor Poll explained that if you design an aircraft around a bird the best thing you could come up with is a copy of a bird. This drawing shows a line of planes inspired by swans
