For airplanes, the sky is literally the limit. Planes can lift off vertically or from a ship, they can fly upside down, and spin in barrel rolls. But how are some planes able to fly upside down? Isn’t it the shape of the wings that make them fly? And what limits do they really have? Whether you’re an aviation enthusiast or a nervous flyer, there are some cool flying facts that might just surprise you.
How does water landing work? Will we fly on electric airplanes soon? Why are pilots more worried about hot days than stormy ones? Why should you never use laser pointers around pilots and airplanes? By the way, it’s totally illegal and heavily punishable in some countries. And it’s really stupid. So never do that.
