We went from a small aircraft made out of wood, cotton fabric, and steel wires, to aircraft made out of metal that weigh thousands of pounds along with wingspans up to 262 feet. Despite that, engineers still manage to get these hunks of metal into the air

I don’t like saying this one out loud too much because it makes it seem like I have no knowledge of aviation at all but whenever I see aircraft taking off, I’m always amazed that a 77 ton aircraft just gracefully lifts it’s nose gear off the runway and slowly the rest of it follows.

You can talk all you want about lift, drag, thrust and weight but I will always find that amazing and frankly impossible.

Also, I know this one has been mentioned here before
