A marine scientist in the US state of Washington says he has found a new way to make a huge Jumbo jet to Australia.
The scientist, Dr David Haggard, says the Jumbojet, which will take tourists around the world, can be flown with a pilot on board.
Dr Haggart says it is very easy to fly a plane and he can do it all on a small aircraft.
“I’ve flown a plane before that had four pilots on board, which is great, but I’ve never done that with a plane.
I think I’ve found a way that if I have a pilot flying the plane with a passenger, that it will have a lot more freedom,” Dr Higgard told ABC Radio in the UK.
He said the plane could fly for over 20 hours, making it ideal for long-distance trips.
“If you’re flying from a place like San Francisco to Sydney and then you want to make it back in a day or two, it could be very, very difficult, so I think it’s a good solution for us to do that,” he said.
The jet is about 1,500 metres long and can carry more than 800 passengers, according to Dr Hoggard.
He says it could cost up to $100 million.
Dr David W. Haggards JumboJet, an 8,000kg Boeing 767-300 aircraft, which was designed to carry passengers and cargo, has been built at Boeing’s manufacturing facility in Everett, Washington.
The plane can carry passengers from Los Angeles to Sydney.
The 767 is used to ferry large amounts of freight and is the only passenger jet in the world capable of carrying a passenger and up to 400kg cargo.
The first flight of the Jumbolash was on Wednesday.
Dr W.H. Hoggards jet is now flying from Seattle to Melbourne on an Airbus A330 aircraft, the first passenger plane in the region, according the Boeing website.
The aircraft will then take passengers to Sydney on an Aeromexico Airlines flight.
The company says the first plane will carry more passengers than any other passenger jet ever built.
The Jumboltas are expected to be available by the end of 2020.
