Why do airplane windows have a round shape? #AirplaneWindows #RoundShape #AirPressure #PassengerSafety #AviationHistory Have you ever wondered why airplane windows are round? The answer lies in the physics of air pressure and the safety of passengers. In the past, there were square windows on planes, but they caused accidents due to the sharp corners. The round shape of the current airplane windows allows for a more even distribution of pressure, preventing cracks and breaks at high altitudes.
And so that's why if you get on a plane today, you are bound to look out of a rounded window as you cruise across the sky to your favourite destinations.
All we can say is thank goodness technology has progressed and planes are safer than they were in the past.
