Eric Paciano (left) and Jonathan Lichtwardt (right), both aerospace engineering graduate students at Cal Poly, prepare the AMELIA model airplane for a test. "If you go to SFO (San Francisco International Airport) you're not going to see a single plane that looks like this," Lichtwardt said. AMELIA is still about 20 years away from becoming a reality. The model is made of aluminum and steel with a 10-foot wingspan. (Photo by Mike Anderson)
