    Mythbusters, Plane On A Treadmill Discussion

    I wanted to kick of this thread... Only 15 minutes until Mytbusters on Discovery Channel.

    I am on the record... It will fly.

    Re: Mythbusters, Plane On A Treadmill Disscussion

    One more vote for the plane will fly. I won't be able to watch it in 10 minutes though, I have to go play volleyball. I'll be watching it on the DVR.

    Re: Mythbusters, Plane On A Treadmill Disscussion

    I vote it will not fly, as long as they stick to the myth, meaning the plane's velocity relative to the ground remains zero.

    I'm guessing the plane will not fly.

    I don't think the myth says the speed relative to the ground is to remain zero... But, lets reserve judgment until they describe it in the show.

    And before I close the computer for a little bit, that's not even close to what the myth says.

    Really? Maybe they're doing a different one. This is what I was referring to:

    “Imagine a plane is sitting on a massive conveyor belt, as wide and as long as a runway. The conveyer belt is designed to exactly match the speed of the wheels, moving in the opposite direction. Can the plane take off?"
