A nasty spring storm brought golf ball size hail and some wicked lighting in the parts of Colorado. You can actually hear they're pounding on the car's window. The ugliness did eventually fade out, leaving this amazing rainbow behind. It's coming, I promise. Where is it? We missed the rainbow.

All right. In San Francisco, cameras rolled as a futuristic catamaran capsized during an exhibition race. One crewman was actually taken to the hospital after falling rather on the vessel's wing. The new AC45 is the fastest, fastest of its kind.

And Marie Callender is closing 31 of its locations nationwide. The closings come after the restaurant chain's parent company filed for bankruptcy. The company blames economic conditions in Florida and California for a sharp decline in sales.

The future of flying,a plane with a see-through roof. Find out when you'll be able to go on one of these futuristic flights.

The future of flying revealed today in London. Airbus, a leading European manufacturer, actually showed off a pretty cool concept,a plane with a see-through roof.

CNN's Zain Verjee is here to give us a closer look, shall we say, at the transparent plane

Hi, Kyra.

The whole plane is totally transparent. It's pretty amazing and it is a futuristic look of how we could travel one day. So you just need to forget about James Bond and the invisible car that he has, Kyra.

So, this is the way to go because you can get panoramic views, see absolutely everything. You can get flight entertainment that is powered by the heat of passengers' bodies. The walls are supposed to change according to the conditions that the plane flies in, and then you just breathe in like vitamins and antioxidants and this whole cabin is full of aromatherapy. What do you think of that?

And they have games as well, you can play on this. And you can even play virtual golf.

And the best part is there's no first, no business, no economy. Everybody is in luxury altogether!

OK. This just sounds way too good to be true. I was waiting for you to say and then the open bar and then the masseuse comes through and gives a massage on aisle seven.

So, when is this Airbus actually supposed to take flight?

Yes, that's a bit of a downer. You can't buy tickets tomorrow.It's actually supposed to, the designs supposed to be done and set and ready to fly in 2050, Kyra! So, you know, by the time your twins grow up, they'll be 39 years old, right? And then they'll get to fly this.

So, for now, we're going to have to stick ourselves back in economy, squashed between two people, one of them whom is sleeping on your shoulder and drooling, Kyra.

Well, that was an inspiring story. Thank you so much.
