Default Wake Turbulence behind an A-380

and be significantly stronger" than those from other large jets,
potentially even affecting jets traveling in the opposite direction
some 2,000 feet below.


Who's authors haven't heard about RVSM- ICAO's or WSJ's?

That's actually what keeps the plane in the air.

That is a good article. I would partially disagree in that he minimises
viscosity of the air as a factor. True it is small, however if the air
had no viscosity then there would be no circulation and hence no lift.
He actually shows diagrams without circulation which produce no lift.

The necessity of viscosity was demonstrated by Jean le Rond d'Alembert.
In fact he did painstaking mathematics, without recognising viscosity,
and failed to be able to show why there should be any forces on a body
in an airflow at all. He went to his grave a puzzled and dissatisfied
man.

That is d'Alembert's Paradox.

I know the jet you're referring to but can't remember it... however, I
do also remember that Herb Baker's T-28 has exactly the same system and
you can see a video of it he

It makes for a very cool display.
