SINGAPORE (Reuters) – Years ago, when Randy Tinseth was still running Boeing’s sales account for United Airlines, the plane company’s designers pulled him aside.

He poo-poohed as an old idea a “blended-wing body” airliner design Airbus presented this week, which Airbus says will greatly increase efficiency and reduce emissions.

The Singapore Airshow this week included a rare appearance of both U.S. and Chinese fighter aerial demonstrations at the same event. Combined with the coronavirus fears, it was a surreal atmosphere for many.

“It is kind of strange to go out on such a strange show but at the same time, it still probably makes this special,” Tinseth said. “I watched those airplanes flying today, the boom and the vroom.”
