  • Well, yes and no... a plane fly because of the airflow speed trough the wings generates lift. So if you speed the air trough the wings the airplane can fly. For example one Propeller aircraft in theory can generate enough air flow speed to create lift. And a jet engine also can do this, if you put the jet engine in a position that the thrust generate enough airflow and that air go trough the wings then the plane fly. This is just theoric, i don´t know any airplane with the engines in that position or a propeller airplane that can do that. more the helicopter fly without wings, just with a giant propeller :)

  • I live in Chesterfield....

  • Yes the plane can take off, as it is not the wheels driving the plane forward. Rather the thrust is propelling the plane. The wheels will just spin faster and the plane will move forward and eventually take off. This scenario only works if the conveyor is as long as a run way though

  • Waiting wind limits video. Especially tail and head wind limits are limited by what?

  • Starlux with the call sign starwalker

  • Wow, the legacy of portside and starboard still exists.

  • would it not save even more fuel to taxi just on the APU?

  • Neat! This sorta reminds me of that episode from Mythbusters where they tried that out. Cool channel by the way!

  • I know the answer before you asking it. Answer is yes.

  • yes

  • Excellent video Joe.

  • FO Joe. I did it in 4 years.

  • no, no, the Pilatus PC-24's yoke isn't a PlayStation controller! It has PC in the name!

  • last time i checked spinning wheels dont generate lift lol.....

  • I wonder why this cargo plane (or maybe other cargo planes) did not use the nearest runway (in this case 07R) to land...

  • Thrust is against the air and not the ground. If the wheels provided the force to move forward the plane would remain in position.

  • No

  • Engines, wheels, belts moving one direction or another, slow or fast... it's all irrelevant. Air over the wings is the only thing that matters.

  • One flies and the other one stays on the ground.

  • See this being discussed “again” in one of the GA Facebook groups... seriously. 🙄

  • No bcs the plane needs to go fast enough to have enough air flowing over the wings to generate enough lift to take off.

  • No, because the airflow over the wings does not match the speed and will not generate any lift.

  • At least airplanes are getting some exercise after a long quarantine 😂

  • Well, it can take off... if the belt goes at something like 1000 or 2000 km/h. The belt will move air back, and this generates lift. (The plane will not go very far though)

  • Need airflow over the wings to generate lift. You can spin the wheels on the conveyor belt all you want, but if the plane is sitting still, it will not lift off.

  • departures from Boeing and Airbus to runways

  • Thanks for the video. Please what happened to that airplane that landed with the nose wheel twisted. Thanks in advance

  • no, it can't because engines has to provide trust, and trust provides lift, and if there is no trust, it's imposible to get plane airborne

  • The answer is yes as the plane accelerates, using the engines and not the wheels

  • It won't take off as theres no airflow towards the plane.

  • Now the title goes to Rednose from Norwegian!

  • I’m gonna tell my kids this was Paul Rudd....kidding. Awesome content!

  • One of the flaws in the airplane design was allowing it to be shut off. That fact was pointed out almost immediately. Some said "Oh, there are times when the crew should be able to shut it off." But the fact it was not running has cost millions and millions spent to not find the plane.

  • Your a pilot and you got this wrong?? Come on @captin joe. This was tested 10 years ago and demonstrated the plane will take off. You know a plane gets no forward momentum from the whells it gets it from the engines

  • The whole point was that conveyor cant exactly match speed of the wheels. Engines produce trust that pushes plane forward. So wheels need to start spinning. As soon as they start conveyor will match their speed. Buy Thrust still pushing plane forward so the wheels need no spin faster. And this wheels-conveyor accelerations continues to infinity. But infinity speed is not possible so the riddle doesn't make sense. That is what he was trying to tell.

  • TSRA

  • Checklist completed. Check

  • IFR = I Follow Roads

  • Answer is Yes. Mythbusters did an episode on this. The means of kinetic energy comes from the engines in the form of thrust not from revolving the wheels like in cars.

  • Two additional questions. Can the converyorbelt motion make the plane airborne without the engines? Does Earth rotation impact the airplane liftoff (e.g. in equatorial regions)?

  • Trump just bought the patent !!!

  • Whoo hooo my birthday.

  • Thank's a lot Captain Joe. I've just started with my class for PPL and tou channel is very helpful. Thank you

  • Airspeed causes lift, not the wheelspeed lol

  • Didn't watch the video, but it's pretty obvious that the plane would take off. The engines push the plane regardless of what it's standing on.

  • Yep, that's me. Long sleeves all that round. Small sacrifice though...

  • Hmmm... l hope I'm not the only one, who can imagine other stuff going on there, not just sleeping...

  • An Historian that thinks England is Britain, millions of non English People died defending the UK. England this and England that, yes England is a powerful nation but they wouldn’t have won any wars alone. The Scots, Irish and Welsh along with all our other allies paid a dear price defending this country and shouldn’t be overlooked.

  • Where did you come from, where did you go? Where did you come from, Captian Joe?

  • no !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • It s like usa down

  • No. No lift. In reality, the engines' thrust doesn't care about the conveyor belt, and will propel the plane forward, though, overpinning the wheels on the conveyor belt. However, rather than a conveyor belt, can a 747 theoretically take off in a 184 MPH eadwind (184 mph being the 747's required speed for takeoff), assuming the plane will eventuall have to transition from the 184 mph headwind to some other headwind, crosswind, or tailwind?

  • Regardless of the wording, the reasoning is wrong. The wheels only spin as a function of the thrust from the engines causing the aircraft to move forward. So for the wheels to spin, there would first be forward movement. As the wheels are free spinning, there is no force preventing the forward motion created by the engine thrust. In Capt. Joe's reasoning, we increase ground speed to take off. This isn't true of course, only an effect. Only airspeed affects the takeoff, and is always greater than the ground speed, save for dead calm conditions. In either case, the plane would take off. This was a subject of a Mythbusters episode many years ago. I was very surprised that Adam and Jamie thought that the moving runway would inhibit the takeoff. It was quite clear that the aircraft would take off.

    • Nope , just wrong - in the case above the aircraft would not take off

  • The Mythbusters did an experiment about this

  • In the Navy gas turbine ship I recall actual call "Engineering casualty, engineering casualty, class B fire 1B GTM, MER1. This is not a drill". Repetitive training does pay off in the actual casualty. It save lives. Prevent further damage and costly repairs.

  • I remember hearing someone describe the take off as sounding “like an angel howling it’s way back to Heaven.”

  • Minchia zio che sfigato che sei

  • No, it can't take of. It is nog moving against the wind and therefore there is no lift!

  • Yes, the Smart Fully Automated Routing/Taxi vehicle. The Smart FART.

  • merci monsieur simplement merci vous êtes dubitatif . merci monsieur

  • I just completed my high school. Now after watching this video Im too confused what to do should I join a Flying school first or should I get myself admitted in a university and after getting a degree from there then get back to aviation..............

  • I think the way this instance of the riddle is worded, we have a circular dependency which would cause the ground wheel rotation to accelerate with no upper limit? The ground wheel speed is dependent on the speed of the ground relative to the aircraft. If the aircraft was suspended in a vice or some kind of armature, say, the wheels would rotate normally with the speed of the conveyor belt. Now we introduce a new dependency- the conveyor belt speed is locked to the speed of the wheels, but rotating in the opposite direction. I think the way that is worded means that it would tend to accelerate the speed of the wheels. So if the ground tends to accelerate the wheels, and the wheels accelerate the ground (conveyor belt), I think we have a feedback loop that, as a practical matter, ends in the mechanical destruction of system components. I think this runaway increase in wheel and conveyor belt speed would be triggered by the slightest motion of the wheels relative to the conveyor belt, and might not require the jet to make any meaningful actions at all. It would probably just randomly trigger with the jet sitting on the belt.

  • It wont have thrust cause it would sit in the same place so it wouldnt create lift

  • Can't be always; he decided not to be a dentist!

  • my faforite plane is boeing747

  • "What we should buy ?? " Joe : "Product with Decency !!!"

  • Of course not. They have a recoil starter where you have to pull a rope.

  • Boeing is better. More spacious and more comforting

  • Not sure if my solution to this riddle is correct, I would love to see it being discussed in a video: (juristication: Germany/Europe) You are a student pilot on the day of you exam and your examiner waits for you on an other airfield. Your instructor gives you a written flight order to fly to that airfield and back, making it legal for you as a student to fly there alone. What happens if you do not pass your exam? What happens if you pass your exam? [CAUTION spoiler!] . . . . If you fail, your instructor's flight order allows you to fly home. If you pass, you'll need a taxi. Since you passed, you are no longer a flight student and cannot fly with a flight order from "your" instructor. Since issuing a license takes a few days, you are not a licensed pilot either. So if you fail your flight test, you may fly home on your own. If you are good at flying and pass it, you may not fly home. Is this true?

  • Since the plane doesnt use its wheels to propel itself on takeoff the conveyor is a moot point and doesnt do anything for takeoff

  • They made a tight left u turn and could have lined up for the runway they took off from. That would have been the quickest route to landing. My question is why would they buy time in the air by passing up that runway and circling in from the opposite direction, just to complete the checklists, when they could have set down sooner? Should a crippled air craft try to stay in the air to complete checklists if they are inline for a much quicker landing? That seems like they are taking a much bigger chance of crashing by staying up! Please clear up this question of landing immediately or staying aloft to complete checklists! I feel they should have landed sooner on the same runway without completing checklists since it was offered to them. Thanks. Great video. Jpol.

  • The next ad EEpush showed me was for a conveyer belt company. thx Captain Joe.

  • I hope the entire flight crew gets a raise.

  • I remember when Delta retired the last L1011. It got a water salute before taking off. Very emotional as the L1011s were used a lot ATL to FLL. Back in the day, I was weekly passenger, and it was such a pleasure. My favorite plane ever. The water salute seemed so perfect.

  • No

  • Does the digital era has changed how the documents of the aircraft and crew are handled or its till stick to old pen and paper? or maybe a good combo of both🤔

  • What happened to the exes fuel on the plane? I understand pilots must dump in the air the remaining fuel on the fuel tanks before landing to reduce the risk of fire.

  • It’s basically a treadmill for airplanes

  • "always point skyward", instructions unclear, jacked up the front of my front wheel drive car and now I can't go anywhere
