Airplanes and Aircraft

Parent Category: Cars & Vehicles
Since their invention, airplanes have transformed world travel and military warfare. Ask questions here about the history and technology of airplanes.
1 versus 1, the Mig-15 doesn't stand much of a chance. It's not really a fair competition. The F-22 is probably the best un-classified air to air machine on the planet while the Mig-15 is extremely outdated by todays standards...
like all other engines they are made/manufactured in a factory onan assembly line or mostlikely now, by machines
It reached a published speed of 2,196 miles per hour and it's unclassified speed was 3.3 mach. Actual top speed is now and forever will be classified. It flew so fast that the crews had to wait a few minutes after landing to let the skin cool down.
it has provided a new way of transportation and it has allowed us to travel wherever we would like in a shorter amount of time.
Weight of an object in a flying airplane will lessen very, very, very slightly due to being farther from the center of the earth (gravity), but its mass remains constant.
The Airbus A380 has a total of 22 wheels.
Not really. There are helicopters the reduce noice significantly but all helicopters make some noise. largely due to their engines. This is esspecially the case if they are powered by turbine engines. The blades that cut through the air also make some noise There was a helicopter that was...
The very first was invented by Étienn e Lenoir but it was very weak. Then Nikolaus Otto madethe next two Innvovations and then finally Karl Benz put it in acar.
A pilot experiences negative weight while flying a jet plane when gforce is equalized by the planes thrust so the state of motion ishighly variable although the case for most is mostly forward withslight upward lift.
Depends on the airport and where its located.
with a cessna 152 a 2 seater it will cost about £4000 a year
the pressure in side the balloon will get squizz out and make theair move
The airplane fly on the air by 4 main forces ( drag , lift , thrust and weight ) all these forces affect of the performances of the airplane to fly . - the high power of the engine gave a high speed to the airplane on the runway - the design of the wings make the air pressure down the wings is less...
It was invented because of the desire to fly
Actually Gliders were invented during the time of War. Germans wanted to spy on other countries. So they built gliders.
I think the Douglas DC- 3 is the first flying airliner to carry holiday passengers.
Sure! just make sure it doesn't get spoiled!
A Supermarine Spitfire can travel 423 miles on one tank of gas.
Takeoff speeds of commercial passenger jets can vary greatly depending on aircraft design, weight, flap setting, runway condition, etc. However, most commercial jets take off somewhere between 130 kts (B737)and 155 kts (B747). The Concord had a takeoff speed of 195 kts.
What do you mean by tail spin? How the blades turn? How the back of the helicopter turns?
This is the most comprehensive list I have seen from Kyle Williams and Dan Alex and the Department of Defense. These are the British air crafts only. The Dept. of Defense supplied them with lists of aircraft and weapons from other countries too. Aircraft Airspeed Oxford Armstrong Whitworth...
Answer this question...Flt control surfaces, (IE) Ailirons, Elevators, rudders, Flaps, Speed brakes.
Convection currents. Cold air is more dense than hot air so itsinks and warm air is less dense so it rises. It repeats over andover again and causes wind.
In general: no, not on a normal flight. Any fuel "left over" in the tanks will be used for the next flight. Airliners only dump fuel when they are too heavy to make a safe landing - and this situation only occurs when the landing happens much earlier than planned, such as a diversion or an...
cold air because hot blowes them up
No. 10: F/A-22 Raptor Manufacturer: Lockheed Martin Power Plant: Pratt & Whitney F-119 PW-100 Top Speed: Mach 2.5 Armament: One 20mm cannon, six AMRAAM and two AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles Because it is almost invisible to radar and carries an awesome array of weaponry the F-22 Raptor,...
no, it slowly picks up speed throughout the travel to the end ofthe launch strip.
no it cannot take off if it is going slow
There is a flight rule that states below 10,000 feet the speed onall aircraft (unless authorised by air traffic control or militarytraffic control) do not exceed 250. However, their take off/landingspeeds vary considerably depending on type and size i.e a cessna150 will tabe off between 55 and 80...
An envelope is the bag in which the hot air is trapped ito to givethe balloon lift.
Approaching minimums is called out by an on board computer when the plane is on approach to land. It means that the pilots are approaching the minimum altitude that they can safely fly to without the runway in sight (ie, through clouds and rain etc). If they reach that minimum altitude and the...
the wing flaps go up and down
The forward movement of an aircraft, usually with engines off usingthe power of a specialized ground vehicle attached to or supportingthe nose landing gear. It may occur for in service and out ofservice aircraft and this will affect the promulgation ofprocedures and the required qualification for...
There's a popular misconception that fountain pens and aircraft simply do not get along.Typically,passenger airliners fly at an altitude approaching 40,000 feet. Atthis height the air is so severely lacking in oxygen that if youwere to breathe it normally, you would have approximately 12seconds...
The sizes and diameters are wide ranging. But 12 to 18 gauge areaverage diameters. The length is aircraft specific with varyingsizes from a few inches to over 12 inches.
Hot Air Balloons will never have the uses they have had in the past. They were used for recon missions in early war time. They will always be used for enjoyment of Mans First Form of Flight. There is nothing more beautiful than a sunrise flight in a Hot Air Balloon. The smiles on passengers faces...
because the plane is moving along and there is good views it wont be that bad
Most small engine aircraft such as Cessna's use a low leaded gas, usually blue in colour. But a lot of Cessna's can be converted to use regular gas that you would use in a car.
It has wing to keep it in the air i love ponies and taco and tomato and bananas and pugs and cheese!
My Cessna 172 (C172) holds 200 liters. 100 in the left wing and 100 in the right wing.
The wright brothers built the plane in Ohio and flew it for the first time in Kitty hawk North Carolina The location of that airplane, named the Flyer, is in the Smithsonian Museum, Washington, DC.
The SR-71 had tricycle landing gear made of titanium.
Designing and building it
Captain Charles "Chuck" Yeager. The attached link will take you to NASA's copy of Captain Yeager's flight report.
This question is in the wrong area. But usually commercial jets,private planes, all types of aircraft.
The first helicopter was called the VS-300.
The maximum altitude for a 747 is 45,100 feet.
there are three axis of motion for aircraft: Roll, Pitch, and Yaw, which correspond to the Z, Y, and X axis in three-dimensional space. (Translation: Yaw = left and right, Pitch = up and down, Roll = rotation) as such, an airplane has three sets of control surfaces: The Rudder, The Elevators, and...
Probably any helicopter or VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) aircraft. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VTOL
For the first time people could see Earth from a birds view.
no they were invented in 0024
General Aviation typically uses 24 volts. Even the Boeing 777 uses24 volts while the newer 787 is 32 volts.
Lift on an airplanes wing is what makes it stay in the air. Of course, lift diminishes the slower you go so eventually the plane will lose lift and begin to fall.
The Wright Brothers are generally considered the first achievepowered flight. Done so on December, 17th 1903. There are arguments that Richard Pearse had done so in the springof 1903.
It depends on what aircraft you are talking about. An F-16A can go1,500 mph.
Typically "track" is used to discuss the path of an aircraft. Butthe term "Vector" can also be used in terms of the path of anaircraft between waypoints. "Vector" can be either heading andspeed or simply heading.
You need to know certain variables the pilot is using, like thespeed, engine power, and the payload
That depends: . It depends on the aircraft. . It depends on the altitude at which the craft is flying. . It depends on the firearm used: caliber, configuration of the ball (hollow point, FMJ, Teflon tip, etc., grain of the ball, load (powder and amount). . It depends on the angle of assault. All...
I started my aircraft parts broker company with less than $2,000.Its a multi million dollar company.
Aluminium because it is strong, easy to mould and lightweight.
the answer is she was very cool by Angelina
The autopilot on a plane will fly the plane just like a car oncruise control, but the plane has sensors that will use the gps toadjust for weather and turbulence.
It depends on the configuration of the A380: 525 in 3 class configuration 644 in 2 class configuration 853 in 1 class configuration
the aircraft back up because it does not want to hurts it frontside but for takeoff and landing it goes back.
Airbus A380. It's double decker, 4 engine and can hold over 500people. It also has gift shops on deck.
The lowest price maybe at least 5000$. Planes that are cheaper than this dont usually do good. The most expensive planes may cost up to a few million dollars.
Amelia Earhart was born July 4, 1897. If Amelia Earhart was tenyears old when she saw her first airplane then the year would be1907. 1897+10=1907
The in-flight entertainment systems installed on aircraft are entirely at the discretion of the operating airline and the route that they are flown on. Generally, domestic short-haul fit outs exclude the entertainment system. The A320 is mostly used for domestic short-haul, so on balance, NO is...
Planes like B-2 Bomber And F-117 Nighthawk are these king of planes. They fly one main wing. They are called Omniwings.
Yes but even if it they did and it was able to work without breaking up they didn't have the engines to run the thing yet.
I cant answer that without knowing the type of plane.
What are allthe possible rational zeros for f(x)=x^3+8x+6
Because air safety regulations have deemed them to be a safety risk for the crew and passengers aboard airplanes.
