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.

You're not serious are you... I can't take another 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

I don't understand how I can ask (multiple times) if my reasoning that the relative ground speed is 0 mph can go so magnificently unanswered.

If my rationale is wrong in that department then my reasoning which follows from that on airspeed also potentially falters and I'll be prepared, subject to a sensible refutation of that rationale, to review my thinking.

For the disbeliever(s):

If it was somehow possible to make the wheels spin backwards while the plane was flying, would it fall out of the sky?
