    Hi wendover. You mention at 2:15 that the majority thrust confess from the core of the engine. Infact, these days most engines use high bypass designs where the majority of thrust will come from the bypass air.

                                  I wish we could make a modern concorde that has engines that adjust their bypass ratio on the fly, like an SR-71 Blackbird

                                      How is it possible,for a airliner to carry 32,000 gallons of fuel for a 7 hr flight?,the weight alone at 5.21 lbs a gallon,approx 160,000 lbs,so if this is correct,there would have to be,2- tanks weighing 80,000 lbs. ,1 on each. Wing,cause that much fuel will not fit in the wings,and that much weight,would break off the wings,combined with the weight of plane,and passengers,a plane could not,even leave the ground and trying would,break off the wings,so something isnt correct about the engines and how they work,i know for a fact,when refueling an airliner,never is thousands of gallons pumped into a plane,the only fuel added is starting the engine,after a certain pressure ,compression is reached,the engine runs on the compressed air,for fuel,this is also why they fly a certain speed,the size and number of engines,and size and weight of plane,and the amount being compressed determines the speed of the plane,turbo jet motors,use the air and fuel ,to reach higher speeds,also the cost per gallon at what were told,would be so much,a flyt you couldn't fly anyone,anywhere,the cost of a ticket would be to high,so something is not being told to the masses, and I believe it's to keep everyone paying ,cause the air is free,and fuel costs are fake,and all these years,and tickets sold the airlines have ripped off billions of dollars from all the passengers,saying fuel is the main cost of the airlines,this is why tickets are high?this is just another example of the public being screwed by the airlines owners,federally run airports, with the gov,involved you know ,something not right and somehow there taking you're money,of course I'm stupid,and a retard,besides that,check it out,do the math,nothing makes sense,the flyt times and speed traveling,doesnt add up either,thats a scam also,

You get to where you need to go quicker.... you don’t need to spend over 10 hours on long haul flights. If you can afford first class on a subsonic plane, I think thats pretty stupid considering that first class is ridiculously expensive anyway and isn’t worth the price. For a smaller price you get to your destination (which could be a vacation, visiting family, etc) faster. I can’t believe people would rather have comfort.
