BC: Are you ever bored of not finding info? Well this is the book for you! This book has a lot of info on the 4 Forces of Flight! This is the book for you!
FC: What would happen if the 4 forces did not take effect?

2: The 4 forces | Did you know there are forces in flight? Not the forces in "Star Wars" but forces that make a plane fly! They are called the 4 Forces of Flight! The 1st force is a force that pulls the plane down do earth and is called gravity. The second force is force that holds the plane back and is called drag. The third force is a force that pushes the plane forward and is called thrust. The engine of the plane must create enough of thrust to overcome the drag. Last but not least the final force which holds the plane up using fast airflow and it is called lift. These are the 4 Forces of Flight and if you start wondering about other things do not forget this is just the 1st page and that there are still lots more pieces of info in this mixbook!
3: The affect of weight on the 4 forces of flight! | As we all know weight can affect other stuff. Well the 4 forces of flight can be affected by many weight issues but we are only going to to talk about two of the issues. The 1st issue that can affect the 4 forces of flight is if the nose or tail of plane is too heavy the plane is to heavy the plane would lean on 1 side and fall to the ground! The second issue we will talk about is if the baggage compartment is overweight and there would not be enough lift to hold up the gravity and weight. Then the plane would crash! Usually the plane would go through a AFT before they would go into flight. Now to conclude our talk about the affect of weight on the 4 forces of flight and you now know that you should not bring too many things on a plane so that the planes baggage compartment is overweight!
4: Weather effects on the 4 Forces of Flight | The plane is already hard to control... imagine if you were in BAD weather conditions! Weather also effects the forces and we are going to talk about two different issues. The first and biggest weather issue in flight are sand storms because you can't see a thing and creates a LOT more drag which makes your plane crash. The second issue is precipitation because it puts a LOT more weight on the lift. Did you know most delays and cancellations on flight is because of weather conditions? That concludes our talk on weather effects on the 4 forces of flight!
5: What if the 4 Forces did not go into affect in combat? | Now for a really interesting topic: what if the 4 forces of flight did not go into affect in combat? Well a fighter pilots job is to protect the sky from enemies. Well if the 4 forces did not go into affect either you and your allies would, or an enemy would have the advantage. The advantage: to be able to shoot vehicles and bomb buildings. Also who ever has the advantage equals bad news for the enemies land troops. That concludes our talk on what would happen if the 4 forces would not go into affect in combat.
6: Interesting facts | We all know that there are always interesting facts in EVERY piece of non-fiction so here is mine. The 1st fact is the engine works like a balloon using thrust to push the plane forward. The 2nd fact is curved/cambered wings equal lift. The 3rd fact is different facts equal different weight carrying. The 4th fact is air over wings equals low air pressure. The 5th fact is the tail wing balance the plane in flight. Last but not least the 6th fact is your ears plug on plane rides is because the plane is changing elevation quickly. Those are some interesting facts I have learned through this project and a special thank you to my teacher and family who have helped and supported me through this project.
7: Glossary | Weather: The conditions outside e.g. Raining AFT: Aerodynamic Flight Test Tail: The end of a plane Nose: The front of the plane. Sand Storm: Storms of sand. Precipitation: Some form of water falling from the sky. Gravity: A force that pulls the plane back to the ground Thrust: A force that pushes the plane forward. Lift: Fast airflow under the wings holding the plane up. Drag: A force that holds the plane back because of friction in the air.
