Well, either that plane now has a serious problem, or you have found the formula for transparent aluminum.

By the way, transparent aluminum is here! The science fiction of Star Trek is becoming reality.

What about Transluscent Concrete! :

"LiTraCon is the name of the material created by 27-year-old architect Losonczi, that makes concrete embedded with optical glass fibers running in a matrix while still retaining the strength of concrete."

Aerogel!! :

A Swedish company made a whole sofa out of the stuff a while back, and it weighed about as much as a can of beer. Also it dissipates heat extremely efficiently...you could hold your hand on the thin sheet in the picture and heat it with a blow torch on the other side without feeling any discomfort.
