Most probably you already know how the airplane wings work, or you think that you know. Well, you may know only half the truth (like i did 35 years now).
Airplane wings have a very characteristic shape (like the image above). Due to this shape, the air above the wing travels faster than the air bellow. And according to Bernoulli's principle, faster going air above the wing puts less pressure than the slower going air bellow the wing. As a result, there is a force generated which pulls the wing upwards (along with the rest of the plane)... right?
If so then how do you explain this:
No, the image is not rotated... it is a typical red-bull plane. The wings should now pull the plane towards the Earth. But how comes and the plane does not fall ?
