So. . .anyone else realize that they missed the point? The point was to see if the plane could fly without going forward. . . the plane is going forward!

A plane not moving forward will not take off. If you can't comprehend that, please learn how a plane works.

That episode was epic.

regardless of what the ground is doing the plane will still move forward.

You always see those dumb planes going around in circles during christmas time at toy shops. They didn't have to have a runway to get them going around in a circle. They just pushed the on button and it moved forward with the propeller/wind. The ground has no bearing on free spinning wheels.

Ok. . .umm. . .how should i put this. . . THAT IS MY POINT!!! i always thought the riddle was "would it take off? its not moving lol! but its still a plane!" which is why ppl would say no, it cant it needs to have wind resistance on the wings. . . which means it would have to be moving, which means that to my understanding, the riddle was asking if a plane could fly with no displacement. . . you know what i mean?

no. you misunderstood the riddle.

i love how people come in here and just expect to be the ONLY person ever to know how a plane works.
