Aircraft Wings are placed perpendicular and horizontal; and parallel to the ground; to the fuselage, as can be seen as an standard practice. This placement is basically inspired by body structure of birds. It has its own disadvantage , like excess clearance require on both sides of runways, and also restricts emergency landings.

Hereby, a suggestion is being submitted to place the wings along the length of fuselage, horizontal, and parallel to the ground. It would reduce the requirement of clearance required on both sides of runway, would provide better opportunities for emergency landings, without reducing the lift effect.
