Beakman's World: Airplane Wings
12:45 - 19:48
7m 3s
Beakman explains how airplanes fly due to the shape of the wings. He demos this by having two toy airplanes (one with wings and one without) to show that the wings are required. To demonstrate air pressure and imbalance, he holds a piece of paper and blows over it to show that the paper will lift to correct for the imbalance in air pressure. Beakman uses an animated clip to explain how the shape of the airplane wing causes this air pressure imbalance and creates lift.
