Cathay Pacific Flight Landing in Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok International Airport.

  1. Hey just thought of this idea: why not install small electric (or gasoline) motors in the landing gear, so that the plane could use them to taxi to the runway. Then turn on engines and takeoff?

  2. Just watching all those vortices providing the plane enough upwards lift is amazing. They have to use reverse thrusters to create air drag, which slows down the aeroplane and ensures for safe landing.

  3. WOW, i didnt realize a component of the engine actually opens behind the intake to thurst it back out towards the front? am I understanding that correctly?
