AAAAAAAAAAARGH
ok, so how does a seaplane take off without it's driving wheels, does it have little paddles driven by the engines or something??

Maybe so, but it does not put you in the 38(ish)% that actually understand the nature - and solution - to the problem.

What will it take to make you substitute your position (that it won't take off) with the correct one (that it will)? Will you claim you are correct until you see, at first hand, a 747 actually take off from a treadmill?

What is it about this that you don't understand?

Have I got that right?

If I have, where does the 180 mph breeze necessary to provide sufficient lift to loft the bastie upward come from?
Seriously, from the engine.

Game, set and match. This perfectly encapsulates, and answers, the problem. You lose.

AH! So you think if you bung the brakes on full at the start of the runway, wang the thrust up to max and wait till the engines pump 180 mph airstream over the entire length of both wings it'll simply lifr off? Matey, the engines can't pump that much air over the wings, even if they were in front of them - LOL.

The engines provide thrust to move the plane which luckily has wings attached. It is the movement through the air of the wings that generates the lift. Strewth.

Bloody 747 VTOL under Captain Skills. I really want to see you try that one.

thanks, I'd often wondered about that, I still don't get how the thing moves along without wheels to drive it, oh well it matters not.

Skill Leverage started this thread WHO IS PUTTING BRAKES ON ANYWHERE YOU COMPLETE AND UTTER MUPPET. Stop skirting the issue at hand, you are WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. Fifty2Aces has just confirmed also, you are outgunned, outmatched and outwitted mate.

Brakes add friction, which counteract the forward motion. A CONVEYOR BELT DOES NOT. YOU ARE A FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
