All I did was point out that a huge flying brick is transported riding on the back of another plane.
OK....since you refuse to research the details, I will have to fill you in.
WHEN NASA is forced to land the Space Shuttle anywhere other than the Space Center, THEN it is an incredibly extra expense to fly the specially
equipped B747 to pick up, take the time to hoist and mate, then FLY at very slow, NON-NORMAL airliner speeds (somewhere around 270 knots) because of
the unusual configuration. This INCREASES the fuel consumption (burn) and requires refueling stops, further adding to the expense of the
Really, I am JUST GOING FROM MEMORY, based on what I remember reading...you can certainly Google the exact details, if you care to. (I certainly
will, now!!! Just to get "current")
I also pointed out that planes can carry A LOT of stuff a LONG DISTINCE.
SO??? Passengers, luggage and any cargo as payload....check!
An appropriate amount of fuel (which, BTW, has weight) for the flight length, plus extra, Plus
other extra for alternates.....check!
Combine those with a Spècial Access Program, and there are real chemtrail planes.
Right [color=cyan]HERE!!! is where you jump the shark!!!
"chemtrail planes" means, by definition, a whole lot of more stuff....
---equipment on board. All of the plumbing, pumps, tanks...nozzles.
---ways to refill the "tanks"
---switches in the cockpit, circuit breakers appropriate and dedicated to the cockpit switches, the valves, the pumps...all located on the Circuit
breaker Panel, also in the cockpit
---the training for the flight crews, to wit, in operational details of said systems. TO INCLUDE emergency/non-standard procedures
---a HUGE amount of people to provide the on-the-ground servicing of these "TOP SECRET" onboard 'tanks, and associated plumbing'
---ALL of the airline personnel, to include the mechanics, who would HAVE to know about these things, since they would SEE anything out of the
ordinary (as would the pilots)...
I really do not have to continue this farce. IT IS A FARCE!!! Period.
Every idea "floated" by the conspiracy nuts can be easily shown to be, well....NUTS! These concepts are suggested by people who have NO IDEA of the
reaity of the real world...sorry to be so blunt, but it is the truth.
AND, it is a sad commentary on the state of education, and lack of scientific knowledge, that currently permeates our society.
Well I looked it up, despite some computer probs:
Cruise speed: Mach 0.6 (397 knots, 457 mph, 735 km/h)
Range: 1,150 mi (1,000 nmi, 1,850 km) while carrying Shuttle
Service ceiling: 15,000 ft (4,500 m) (with Shuttle)
