Hey there!

I would like to get some general information on powerbacks. I know it's when an airliner uses the reverse thrust to pull itself out of the gate, but would it create a large wind tunnel or possibly suck up any loose stuff from the ramp? Possibly crates, or carts?

Also, which airliners can do it?

I'd like to elect a president that has a Higher IQ than a retarted ant.

When powerbacking from the gate, the pilots use Minimal reverse thrust. So, generally it is not enough to suck in a cart.
