When you’re assigned a window seat for your flight, do you ever look at the window and wonder why it’s round and not square like a window in a house? Well, for starters, that rounded shape is helping you and everyone else on the plane make it safely to your destination.
TikToker designsecrectsss, who reveals design secrets of everyday life, just divulged why airplane windows are round. In a video, they showed viewers the first commercial airplane, the 10r Comet, had square windows. The model also experienced three crashes within the first year of flight — all due to stress on the windows.
