How to Apply Newton's laws of motion to flares with NASA
In this video, learn about aircraft flares from NASA. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration provides valuable information about Newton's three laws of motion and how they apply to aircraft landings and what happens when mistakes happen (flares).
This NASA video segment from "Flight Testing Newton's Laws" explores how Newton's laws apply to the landing of an airplane. Viewers watch an instructor at NASA's National Test Pilot School explain what happens during the flare phase of landing and how mistakes in a pilot's timing can make landing impossible.
