Students Conduct Successful Test Flight of Concrete Plane in South Dakota

While building an industrial-sized aircraft is not possible with current technology, Haberman and Pojanowski's smaller model "could lead to further developments in concrete, making it stronger, lighter and easier to work with when it comes to building structures," writes Andrew Liszewski.
