Everything you've ever wondered about flying on airlines. The Flying Book reveals, among other things:
that air pockets are a myth, that a plane won’t fall
out of the sky if its engines fail - except in disaster
movies - and how flying is the safest form of
transportation in the world (other than the elevator).
How does a plane actually get off the ground and stay up? (It's not what you were taught at school)
Why do the captain and the first officer always eat different meals during the flight?
Are all the stories about DVT true?
Why is turbulence really nothing to be scared of?
How often is cabin air recycled?
Why are pilots not allowed to have beards?
Any why is it a very bad idea to flush the plane toilet seat while you are sitting on it?
