I realise there’s a whole lot of stuff on this site that may not appeal to people who don’t like science or mathematics. I’ve tried to keep the explanations accurate to avoid any misunderstandings that may occur because of generalisations. So on these pages I intend to describe things very much more simply whilst hoping to preserve as much accuracy as possible.
Why planes fly
When a plane picks up speed to take-off the wind blowing over the wings causes a vacuum on top and makes the air thicker underneath the Wing. This means that there is a suction on the top which lifts the plane. As long as the plane is flying fast enough there will be enough suction to keep it airborne. As the plane slows down the flaps make the wings the bigger so it does not have to fly through the air so quickly.
