#3998 Does the plane take off?

Posted by Martini on 27 August 2007 - 04:29 AM

A jet plane is on a long treadmill and the pilot attempts to take off in the normal fashion. The treadmill is designed to track the speed of the plane and go that exact speed in the opposite direction. Does the plane take off?

Now take the same situation and replace the jet plane with a propeller plane. Does the plane take off?
