How does inflight wifi works? Do Airbus aircraft have their landing gear in a 'off' position? If an airplane lands, why are the flaps lower than the flaps that take off? Why is jet fuel more sensitive than aviation gasoline to water contamination? Where does it go when a plane releases its excess fuel overhead? What happens if you trigger an Airbus A320's engine thrust reverser inflight? Why doesn't an airplane's flap and slat move at the same time? Why don't airplanes have to search 2 auto pilots for themselves? Why do aircraft tyres smoke when they land? How is the physics behind thrust reversers in a high bypass turbofan? How do any planes really reverse their use?
