Looks like the US Air Force have been watching Star Trek movies (transparent aluminum, anyone?) and making clear armour for their planes.

 

It's meant to be stronger than any of the existing glass.

Damn, the future is here already. :)

 

 

 

Of course, Star Trek 5 could have been "real" and Scotty could have really given the formula for transparent aluminum to somebody. ;)
