Default Why airplanes fly

Fixed-wing aircraft fly because their wings generate lift as they move forward
through the air.

I actually thought someone had generated an email address that would
look like MX's to write spoof postings, but if you click on the handle
it comes back to the artest we know.

It must be so lonely in Paris. . . .

And somehow his 'I have a life" simulator must have failed. too.

Bertie, was 'nope' the best you could do? Do you expect a woman to do
a man's work here?
