  • Spins

    While looking for a video I had seen before that I wanted to put into the wake turbulence thread, I came accross this video that shows the effects of different control inputs during a spin, pretty neat to watch.

    edit: oh yeah, probably a good idea if I give a link eh?

        How can you not throw up after that?

        Pretty interesting video though.
        "The Director also sets the record straight on what would happen if oxygen masks were to drop from the ceiling: The passengers freak out with abandon, instead of continuing to chat amiably, as though lunch were being served, like they do on those in-flight safety videos."

          in most planes fllat spins are a major bad thing, but I believe most aerobatic planes have some small holes along the horizontal stabilizer which allows air to flow through it and still reach the vertical stab (tail) so its still possible to recover.
