You will obviously remember the great plane debate, one of the most debated things on the web.. if you dont its will a plane take off if its on a conveyor belt (the belt going at reverse take off speed, and the plane at take off speed)
Well in the newest of the mythbusters they do it at first small scale and well the plane takes off, but serioulsy we cant take that for gospel can we?
So they build a massive conveyor belt...and well....
..I would like to start of by saying I WAS RIGHT!!
The plane much to the suprise of the pilot (who believes it will stay stationary!) Takes off!
The plane needed to accelerate to 25mph to take off (light weight ariel show thing) and 85 feet of run way to take off.
Well it took off at about 20 feet because obvioulsy it will move forward due to the fact there is no friction but fact remains IT DID TAKE OFF
