As part of the forces unit in science, the students eagerly listened to Captain Wile as he explained how airplanes fly by utilizing the Four Forces of Flight including lift, gravity, thrust, and drag. Captain Wile discussed Bernoulli’s Principle and
Newton’s Law in relation to flying Boeing 737 airplanes.
