A set F_q of 3-dimensional subspaces of F_q^7, the 7-dimensional vector space over the finite field F_q, is said to form a q-analogue of the Fano plane if every 2-dimensional subspace of F_q^7 is contained in precisely one member of F_q. The existence problem for such q-analogues remains unsolved for every single value of q. Here we report on an attempt to construct such q-analogues using ideas from the theory of subspace codes, which were introduced a few years ago by Koetter and KschischangarXiv:1504.06688v1 fatcat:7ej37ev3yzewdbfmnmjfzgvimm
