Wired.com has compiled a portfolio of “promised skylines we never got to see — and a few that may yet come to be — as seen from the imagined eyes of those who live there.” The picture above is Frank Lloyd Wright’s “This Illinois”, which was supposed to shoot 5,278 feet above Chicago. Other “alternate reality architectures” include
Welthauptstadt Germania: The projected renewal of the German capital Berlin by Adolf Hitler
X-Seed 4000: Home to 500,000 of Tokyo’s finest.
The Arcologies, 2070: Sets of architectural design principles aimed toward the design of enormous habitats (hyperstructures) of extremely high human population density.

So when American Airline is in trouble and Oasis Airline closing down, we should be thankful that there’s still an option of viable air-taxi service by a new company called DayJet. The Atlantic Monthly’s James Fallows asserts that, by using its fleet of tiny Eclipse 500 Jets to shuttle passengers back and forth to wherever they want to go and whenever they want to get there, DayJet is one of the first companies to offer such service to United States.
The problem with taxis, whether on ground or in sky, is that it can be costly. Wired.com states that DayJet’s service may cost about twice as much as a standard flight. On top of that, it is currently limited to the southeast corner of the country of United States.
