If you’re going on safari, or just getting away for the weekend, this concept plane by DesignQ provides the perfect ride. The UK-based design shop developed the Explorer for BAE Systems, the first of four concepts that aim to explore the possibilities for the Avro Business Jet (ABJ), based on a repurposed BAE146 regional jet. The spacious layout of DesignQ’s concept plane provides a unique outdoor deck that is designed from a modified cargo door and can be deployed or stowed in just a few minutes with the push of a button. Other features include a barbecue station, a marble-floor entryway, and a fully equipped office.

The interior of DesignQ’s concept plane also provides plenty of space for a dining area, a lounge, two private staterooms, and crew quarters. With four jet engines placed high on the wings, the ABJ is also capable of landing on grass, gravel, or sand airstrips – opening up a world of remote locations for travellers to explore.
