I love flying. My grandfather was a pilot and former member of the Army Air Corps (pre-Air Force) and owned a little Cessna for years.

I still get a thrill during every takeoff as my stomach drops and lays somewhere on the ground as we climb, leaving the restriction of the ground.

But how do planes fly? You may know, but I bet a student has asked you at some point.

Even if you know how planes fly, this epic interactive explainer is a great way to share flow concepts and how an airfoil works with anyone.
