Today’s invention is an electric vehicle which is used on runways to push the undercarriage of a plane almost to the point of take off.

This reduces the fuel used by the engines, so that a plane can stay aloft for longer.

It may also stress the airframe less and reduce take off noise.

The vehicle might be controlled by the flightcrew direct from the cockpit.
