Airplane Things You Don't Know The Purpose Of

  • Published on May 23, 2017
  • Airplanes have had wings, controls and some kind of motor but planes have evolved significantly. The commercial airliner you fly in now has features that Orville and Wilbur wouldn’t have dreamed of. Here are 10 things you might not know about modern aircraft.

    Have you ever heard of Santos Dumont? October 1906 his 14-bis made the first powered heavier-than-air flight. Unlike others, he donated many of his prizes and inventions plans. Because of him, Cartier invented the first wristband watch. But everyone just talk about these brothers. You can find more about Santos Dumont in Wikipedia.

    For number 4 only Airbuses have these. The yokes on Boeings are mecanically interlinked and this would have prevented the tragic events of Air France 447.

    Did you know that some planes have glowing paths for night time in the planes? Oof that’s obvious haha (might not even mean for night time)

    Tipping or gifting your flight crew (chocolate) will serve you wonders in flight.

    Did you know Flight Attendants are not paid until the plane is airborne?
    So chill until we're in flight ..then thank, compliment, tip or tell joke to staff

    Passengerplane jetplanes have since 60 Years back ALWAYS fly in compressed air, they have no jetfuel, so it is a fraud we have to pay for fuel and tax for something they don't have

    Compressor air ends up at a very high temperature due to pressure increase and that feeds bleed valves. If the air came from the turbines you would roast like a chicken.

    6. I fly 30-40 times per year and cannot recall ever having been asked to raise my window shade for takeoff or landing. They do often ask that, when it is hot outside, you lower your shade before deplaning. Not sure where this one comes from.

      @Gary William oo damn okay bro chill I didn't mean anything bad but if someone shares information to audience I think it has to be 100% true so that yiu don't tech people wrong things.. And it has to be professional too...

    Where in the world did you get the idea that the center of gravity is ideally over the center of the wing, or that the center of lift is the center of the wing? And how does moving passengers around in the fuselage that size reduce drag? As far as the sidestick replacing that "old steering column" - check out the 787 control yoke. Oh - and you can fly around all day long at 3000 metres without a pressurized cabin or supplemental oxygen. Entertaining video, but a bit of research would help.

    Im sry to say, but the side stick is really only used on Airbus's (i think)
    and most planes use a yoke or stick as you say.

    Trash collected from international flight originated from outside the USA to USA has to be incinerated and not just thrown away. This is to prevent "bugs" or anything harmful from just being tossed in garbage.. When Air Force 1 fly's to a foreign country say in Africa jet fuel is flown in for the plane along with the Presidential limo aka"Beast" and the Marine Corp helicopters are put into C-5 Galaxy planes.. A lot of logistics..

    If you bleed air into the cabin right out of turbine and you will be roasted !
    Bleed air is actually taken out of low pressure compressor where the air has appropriate temperature and pressure , conditions roughly similar to those at ground level or above up to 9000 ft.

    • Tom Lies
      Tom Lies 5 months ago

      Bleed air is taken from 5th stage or 7th stage on average, with the stages being counted as each level of compression from the front to rear. It is highly compressed and therefore it is also heated considerably from the rapid compression (hundreds of degrees). Bleed air is routed from the engines to be used as anti-icing for the leading edges, on aircraft that employ such systems, as well as being used to pressurize the cabin and provide temperature control. When used for cabin pressure, the bleed air is cooled to almost 32 degrees and is mixed with the hot bleed air to achieve the desired temp as set by the pilots. Outflow valves on the main pressure bulkheads (again depending on aircraft design - can be front or rear) constantly open and close to maintain the pressure differential which is set by the pilots as well.

      This is a general overview of a typical bleed air system.

      That’s good for anti-ice and wing heat? But not the cabin....ami right?
