Top 10 Airplane Things You Don’t Know The Purpose Of



Airplanes have had wings, controls and some kind of motor but planes have evolved significantly. The commercial airliner you fly in now has features that Orville and Wilbur wouldn’t have dreamed of. Here are 10 things you might not know about modern aircraft.

Be Amazed at… The mysterious triangle symbol over your seat – When you board a modern jet aircraft, you’re probably looking for your seat number and for the nearest emergency exit. The flange sticking out of the wing – While you’re waiting to leave the gate, you’re probably staring out the window at the wings that are going to carry you off this Earth. The hum when you board the plane – Have you noticed that there’s an omnipresent drone while you’re waiting for the last passenger to board the plane? Tomato juice – Do you find yourself ordering a tomato juice when you’re on a plane? Opening window shades for landings and take-offs – I bet you thought the window shades were installed on planes so you can sleep during long flights. Winglets – Airplanes are always a tug-of-war between the thrust of the engines and aerodynamic drag. Sidestick – Back in the day of the first planes, pilots were known as “stick and rudder men”, steering the plane by the power of their arms and legs pushing on control cables. Bleed air system – While the Wright Brothers’ Flyer barely flew above the dunes at Kittyhawk, today jetliners fly higher than the tallest mountains. The eye level indicator on cockpit window – Pilots come in all sizes – and just like your car, planes have adjustable seats for them. The hole in your window – Since cabin pressure is so important, you might not think a hole in your window is a good thing.

    There are a number of "bleeds" that draw air as it passes through the different compressor stages of the turbine.  The air from those bleeds provides pressurized/heated air for powering various aircraft systems, including engine starting, air conditioning,  pressurization, anti icing for the wings/control surfaces and pitot/static systems, etc.  There is only one turbine shaft that runs the length of the engine, beginning with the fan stage at the front.  Simply put, there is but ONE turbine with multiple compressor stages and multiple engine "bleeds".

    Actually, planes' center of Gravity is not in the middle, it's usually near the black, It helps reducing fuel burnt.

    Death zone at 3k meters?..

    Great video! What about not 13th rows in some planes? Some cultures finding the 13 number unluck.

  8. spacecadet35 December 28, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    @7:15. The death zone is above 8,000 meters, not 3,000.

    Yes I do have one curious question about plane. This particular one is about why they paint the propeller nose of the engine with a white cork screw lines ?

    Oh and JetBlue has the flange (I was in a plane today )

    Aviators be cringing

  12. sicksimpletyrannosaur December 28, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    I don't remember any movies but the complementary pack of TWA matches in the armrest ashtray made up for it.

    No, sidesticks are not standard except on Airbus aircraft. Boing aircraft still use a steering yolk and any movements of the yolk are transmitted to both pilot and copilot. If this were true for Airbus, Air France Flight 447 may not have ended in disaster.

    Enough with adds in the middle of the videos. Very annoying

  15. Boeing 7378MAX fan December 28, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    most companies still use a yoke system not a sidestick infact only Airbus uses them(maybe smaller companies also use sidestick) so saying every modern aircraft uses a sidestick would be damn wrong yoke controlled airplanes also have better control surfaces and a lot of companies bombardier,Boeing etc they all use yokes bcs they feel the way that pilots are more comfortable with the yoke rather than a sidestick so go ahead and fix your video by mentioning that yokes are STILL IN USE IN MOST OF THE COMPANIES and what the fuck do you mean by "driving a plane"c'mon atleast don't make the most simple mistakes

    3000 metres? WTF…

    Yes

    2:52 not for DRIVING the plane. Bad Grammer. Its called flying

  20. Katzen33 December 28, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    7:50 Think you mean the compressor. Bleed air is taken in at one of the compressor stages and air temperature decreases when it goes through the turbine anyway.

    I knew everything, they taught me it in school, exept for the cockpit ones, I don't go up there…

  22. FreezeFlame December 28, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    I’ve never been on an airplane before.

  23. Ninjakins Plays December 28, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    I knew a lot of these facts…

  24. misguidedsaint 3 December 28, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    Most common planes only require one engine to fly but use two just Incase one fails and also for aero dynamic reasons. There’s also a whole book of what isn’t needed before takeoff.

    If you're sitting in a window seat, USE THE WINDOW!

  26. Norman Seagull December 28, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    Window shades closed also hide the chem trail emissions.
