Greatest Achievement: Airplane
Transcript of Greatest Achievement: Airplane
Forces that Make an Airplane Fly
Helps to produce lift
Created by propellers or jet engines
1914- First Commercial Flight
St. Petersburg to Tampa Bay, Florida
The flight lasted 23 minutes
The Airplane: The Greatest Engineering Achievement
Presentation By: FEDDS Watching
Works against lift
Pulls plane to the ground
1930- The Jet Engine
When Things Go Bad
1939- Heinkel 178 was developed in Germany and was the first plane to use the jet engine
Resistive force to thrust
Caused by friction from wind
Bernoulli: High speed=Low Pressure
Air hits leading edge, splits, and rejoins
Faster over top, slower under bottom
Top of wing has lower pressure causing lift
Newtonian: Air is deflected off bottom of wing causing lift
Invented by Frank Whittle
The Black Box
Boeing developed the largest passenger plane at the time, the 747
TWA Flight 800
"Deadliest and most mysterious commercial air crash in U.S. aviation history" - CIA
We just saw and explosion up ahead of us...It just went down—to the water."-Captain David McClain
"Most expensive, complex, and costly air disaster"- CIA
