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.

    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 16 days 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?

    An interesting one is the ashtray in the lavatory, which is still there even though smoking on planes has been illegal for decades. Some thinks it's because it would cost too much to design a new door without the ashtray and have it type-approved. While some thinks it's because the regulations requiring an ashtray are out of date.
    The actual reason they have ashtrays is that, if someone decides to break the law and have a smoke, it's MUCH better to discard it safely in the ashtray than in the trash where it can start a fire.

    • flyboy152

      Also, planes are sold all over the world, some to countries where it is still legal to smoke on airplanes. This way, they don't have to create 2 versions of the lavatory.

    Tomato juice has another use; it's the best cure for airsickness I know. As a small kid, I was on a flight to Tehran when I became violently unwell. The Stewardess gave me a tomato juice and within seconds I was right as rain. I still drink the stuff on flights, but also? It's handy when you're 'on the sauce' to drink between 'proper' drinks. Gives you second wind, so to speak... btw, due to the effects of pressure etc, one alcoholic drink in the air hits you like three on the ground. I don't advise 'pissing it up' on a plane.

    Wright biplane wasn't made from balsa wood. Spruce or maple are strong and light.

    Bleed air comes from the engine's compressors and not from the turbines.

    Sorry, but the APU has nothing to do with the fire suppression system. It has it's own and is independent of the one for the engines.

    The window shade one is wrong. Planes are most likely to crash during take off and landing, so of they do, you need to keep the shades open so whoever helps you, can easily see where u are
