Re: [i]We[/i] are TOTALLY Not_comfortable with how wings "work".

Shipies with sails have been involved in too many Total Water Disasters. Aeroplanies with whings have been involved in too many Total Air Disasters. Coincidence?
Nope, they have a common cause: humans.
Are you Evan?

Ban all humans.

Re: Are [i]we[/i] comfortable with how wings work?

Remember- according to many books, wingies are more curveyey on top and flattery on bottom because Bernoulli sucks on the top, producing much more lift on top... Would now be a good time to mention things like hang-glider wings and windsurfer sails* that are curved on the bottom too? Because they'r...

Re: Are [i]we[/i] comfortable with how wings work?

Would now be a good time to bring up the subject of an aircraft that is flying inverted? :twisted: Eric: This is an advanced forum. We know: 1. Barn doors can generate great lift. 2. Aerobatic aircraft may have more symmetrical wing profiles to support “negative/inverted” lift. However, it was esta...

Agricultural comment: The statements below are not absolute...but largely true? with respect to wings: The air on the underside of the wing has no choice BUT to be shoved down...a flat surface will suffice. The air on top is “free” to not_follow the wing...but the curved surface does a better job pr...

There is so much wrong stuff circulating... I think we are saying the same thing (except for me being confusing). Hard to understand what happened at the end.

Re: Atlas 767, Houston

Colgan pulled up like crazy. While dead tired at ~2000 ft AGL in hard IMC. I struggle to extrapolate to 6000 ft AGL and not_really IMC... No good evidence of a pull up during that last 5 seconds that were filmed (and which were VMC) I know you think Colgan pulled up excessively (for 6 seconds), but...

Here's a wind tunnel video. http://www.msn.com/en-us/video/viral/strong-winds-knock-truck-over-in-texas/vi-BBUL2VP?ocid=ientp No big change to aerodynamic theory- just moderately interesting- and is a fun jab at the need for the super critical curved airfoil requirement vs. the barn door.

Inspired by there , here's a break off thread about stuff that is not_ directly related to the 737-Mini-Lav.

***more than enough time***
Lazy question: Anyone know how fast this MCAS thingie puts in nose-down trim?...I always thought that trim progressed kind of slow and gentle...But maybe if you need to fight stall that has nose up tendencies :shock: , maybe it needs to kick in faster?

Late in my 172 training... Lift off...Instructor reaches down...cranks trim wheel full nose up... 3BS pushes (the damn trim tab can generate some fairly amazing forces)- nose stays on the horizon, speed at 80 MPH, climb at ~800 FPM. Then instructor reverses and proceeds to crank it full nose down. 3...
