Airplane Teaser

Airplane Teaser on Boing Boing has both the original poster and commenters showing their ignorance of physics. You can read the teaser there. The short of it is, no air moving past wings means no lift, period. Conversely, the wheels could bloody well be locked, and if you put that plane in a wind tunnel, it would lift, even if it ended up flying backwards. ;)
