    So the wheels and treadmill are going at the same speed? But because of the engines, the plane is actually moving forwrd, unlike someone running on a treadmill?

    How many people would have come to the right conclusion without the previous million pages?

    And I have been running this through my head all weekend. It's like that frigging water puzzle from Die Hard 3.

    what sort of speed does the wheels need to be going to overcome the weight of the plane (as its a fair amount, weight that is)..... surely the combined speed of the road moving, and the plane going forward would thrash the wheels before take off...

    Just thinking out loud here guys, i get what everyone is saying.

    The thing is James, and its what a lot of us did not take into account, is that the wheels are in freewheel, so the friction of the contact with the belt is all that affects the wheels. Therefore they just spin as they should do, what the jet does is push the plane forward thus making the wheels spin faster than the belt thus causing forward motion, obviously the initial inertia has to be overcome.

    it would of saved a lot of headaches if the plane was a harrier rather than a 747 :rolleyes:

    Yeah, totally understand that the wheels dont slow down the plane, but they are still taking the weight of the plane until the plane takes off.

    So if the plane is going say 150mph then the road must also being going 150mph in the other direction, so a combined speed of 300mph.... what i'm asking is, are the wheels rated to that speed? fooked tires=to takey offy :eek:

    you get what im asking?

    im with cooks, the net speed of the plane is ZERO and becuase a 747 needs to be going at X mph to generate enough lift to takeoff it will not do this
