Nasa's Interactive Aircraft Guides

Sun Dec 02, 2007 5:53 pm

During a bit of googling, I came across this series on the NASA site. While they may not seem to belong in Civil Aviation I think they can serve to answer some of the basic questions many of us have about the effects of flight.

With the never ending questions about the relative benefits of different wings and such, (787 v.350 v. 777), I thought this could be educational, if not settle the occasional argument.

Besides, they're kinda fun...enjoy.
