Incidentally my pet gerbil, who has been dead for 3 years, understood the problem 2 hours ago.

hey i will assume the engines are enough for the plane to fly.
Perhaps because old planes in the past require lots of forward movement to generate enough wind speed to lift off. Maybe that is why there is a misconception that forward movement is required for the air lift. I thought the plane would not take off initially. But after reading through, if the engines are enough for that force in modern times the plane definitely can fly.

Probably a plane does not need wheels at all. i guess the wheels are used for takeoff so the body does not get scratched on the ground while moving forward. The plane can be fixed on something that locks it while the engine is turned on then released once it can lift off. But wheels are used since they are required to land properly anyway. To serve these 2 purposes but actually to take off they are not really needed.

The oldest plane in the world would take off mate; forward motion is required for lift, that's not the misconception, the misconception is that the conveyor belt prevents the plane from moving forward.

I am NOT getting into this with a second person...

You're doubtless implying that the whole thing was just a troll..

FWIW, I have read other members posting quite complimentary comments about Bramble, and am keen to sample some of his trading related views.

That was fun! Maybe TheBramble has gone to test it in his plane. What would happen if the plane was on rollers? Like those that you get in a car garage. The same?
