Next we'll put some spinning rims and some under-wing neons on that bitch.

That would take balls to attempt. Where do you even attempt to try this at, over water?

I'd like to think he attempted it over an orphanage.

It's not in the slightest bit fucking real. Do you have any idea how hard is is to make jet aircraft hover??

It would require an incredible advanced fly by wire stem to stop the plane from simply toppling over IF there is even enough thrust to keep it in the air. A plane like that stays in the air die the the uplift causes by the wings at speed, it wouldn't be able to stay jn the air like that if you tried to get a computer to do it. The plane simply isn't capable.

Instead of all that crap, Mr.Hughes, why not just say most planes have a stall speed of about 155 knots?

Lol. The A330 does have have incredibly advanced (last decade tech though) FBW... And "updraft caused by it's wings"? Keep to topics you know something about, limey. Leave the big aviation talk to me.

And for the sake of explaining to you what's going on, the Airbuses (A3xxs) have stall protection. With minimal input from the pilot, tje aircraft can be put to within a few knots of stall at very high angles of attack. In this case, the aircraft also had a good headwind to play with.

i am a bit curious - are you actually someone who claims to have killed a zombie?

if so - how did that work?

if not - why would you choose a name like this?
i mean, are you a FutureZombiekiller?
