Information Report

The gipsy moth was is a biplane which was invented in the 1930’s. The inventor created the plane after world war 2.

All about the Gipsy moth plane
The gipsy moth was invented by Geoffrey De Havilland. When the plane was finally built he done a test drive to see if there were any mistakes or left out parts.

There are 2 big wheels in front and 1 small wheel in back  so when landing they could land more softly. The struts are used to hold the up wing and bottom wing together.  

The gipsy moth plane came to the USA in 1868. Étienne Léopold Trouvelot bring the plane to the USA in 1868.

This is my information report on the gipsy moth plane.

How does a plane fly

How does a plane fly?
Planes fly by using their wings. The 4 forces of flight are weight, drag, lift and thrust those are the 4 forces of flight. Planes travel 600 mph per hour. Lots of jets are much more faster because they use more fuel to get to places. Planes need fuel to move forward. If planes do not have fuel it wouldn’t fly. Planes and helicopters are not the same, Helicopters use propellers to fly and planes use fuel to fly. The four forces are drag,thrust,weight and lift.Lift is a mechanical force generated by a solid object moving through a fluid.

Drag is the aerodynamic force that opposes an aircraft's motion through the air. Drag is generated by every part of the airplane even the engines!.

Weight is one of the four forces that make a plane come down.It uses the gravity and its weight.

Thrust is the force which moves an aircraft through the air. Thrust is used to overcome the drag of an airplane, and to overcome the weight of a rocket.

One of the events were the twin towers.People had to jump from the tower to save their life or fall 1,362 feet! The next event was the tenerife disaster which was the worst disaster in history.

Today we had to write a information report about how does a plane fly. This is my information of how a plane fly's.
