You claimed curves could not be parallel now like all Flatties you squirm at the truth


They are not parallel, that's the truth. Parallel is also used as a general term, for ANY two lines, being equidistant.

Are you squirming, now?

You said curves cannot be parallel they can you flatties cant understand basic scale or physics that's the real problem

Parallel lines are straight. Other lines, like curves, or squiggles, may be equidistant lines, which is a feature of parallel lines - it is not equivalent to parallel lines.


And it's not even relevant to the issue, obviously.


The 1800 feet of missing curvature are still unaccounted for, and that's the issue here.


A 6 hour flight must fly over 1800 feet of curvature, if Earth is a sphere. Nobody can account for it, that's the problem.

If we assume a plane curves during flight, it must be a constant descent path, in order to follow the curved surface below.


A curved surface being a 'descending' surface.

But the problem is that to follow a surface in flight, is not possible, even if it were attempted. The surface is thousands of feet below a plane, how could anyone know what the curvature is?

Planes would have to account for curvature in a flight by the plane's instrument readings, obviously.


That's the whole purpose of having instruments in a plane, isn't it?
