The Plane Does Not Take Off

O.K., then, I guess we agree. Actually, what I am objecting to is your use of the word "clearly". This problem is difficult as a thought problem, and is more obvious when viewed as a closed-system physics equation.

If the plane does not move horizintally, then according to the rest of my analysis, the plane does not take off because the airflow generated by the engines alone is not sufficient to create enough lift with the wings.

Sorry, Cecil.
