Jet Aircraft Quotes By Randall Munroe

While researching this answer, I managed to lock up my copy of Mathematica several times on balloon-related differential equations, and subsequently got my IP address banned from Wolfram|Alpha for making too many requests. The ban-appeal form asked me to explain what task I was performing that necessitated so many queries. I wrote, "Calculating how many rental helium tanks you'd have to carry with you in order to inflate a balloon large enough to act as a parachute and slow your fall from a jet aircraft." Sorry, Wolfram. — Randall Munroe

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Simon Sinek

Pilots have their names painted just beneath the canopy of their aircraft. This gives the pilot a sense of ownership for his or her jet. What's more, like cars, each aircraft has its own personality, so it's important for a pilot to get to know and love his aircraft. — Simon Sinek

Jet Aircraft Quotes By S.S. Segran

The sleek, white Gulfstream jet cruised at forty thousand feet above the Tyrrhenian Sea west of the Italian mainland.

Though the plane could accommodate eighteen people, only one passenger was aboard the flight. — S.S. Segran

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Ian Anderson

We do hear perhaps too many accolades generally aimed at people like Steve Jobs. We have to remember that there are other classic things in life that we undervalue and take them for granted. If you think of the classic lines of the modern jet aircraft, it's really been there since early World War II. — Ian Anderson

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Steven Magee

If you have traveled on a jet airplane, then you have had a high powered radiation exposure that you have no genetic adaptation to. — Steven Magee

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Auguste Piccard

As to rocket ships flying between America and Europe, I believe it is worth seriously trying for. Thirty years ago persons who were developing flying were laughed at as mad, and that scorn hindered aviation. Now we heap similar ridicule upon stratoplane or rocket ships for trans-Atlantic flights. (1933)
[Predicting high-altitude jet aircraft for routine long-distance travel.] — Auguste Piccard

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Scott Westerfeld

Battered by the mind noise, huddled in the back with eyes closed and fists clenched, the old Melissa had understood pep rallies about as well as a bird sucked through a jet engine comprehended aircraft design. — Scott Westerfeld

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Ray Bradbury

The very first experiments with building rockets and firing them off were carried out by students at Cal Tech in 1937, '38 and '39. And later these people put together these jet propulsion labs in Pasadena and wound up sending aircraft and spacecraft to the moon. So it all began very primitively with love. — Ray Bradbury

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Tina Fey

In response to the escalating violence in Iraq, President Bush is delaying the return home of 25,000 troops and will actually add reinforcements to the south. Then in a symbolic gesture he pulled down the mission accomplished banner, put on a flight suit, walked backwards to a jet fighter and flew it in reverse off an aircraft carrier. — Tina Fey

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Sam A. Patel

My feet catch the roof like the arrester hook of a fighter jet coming into an aircraft carrier. — Sam A. Patel

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Steven Magee

As a sea level adapted human, I am more fearful about the radiation levels on top of high altitude mountains, mile high modern cities and inside jet aircraft than from nuclear reactors and bombs, as that is where I get the most radiation exposures in the modern world. — Steven Magee

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Lois Lowry

But the aircraft a year ago had been different. It was not a squat, fat-bellied cargo plane but a needle-nosed single-pilot jet. — Lois Lowry

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Steven Magee

Flying in a modern jet airplane doses the human with levels of radiation comparable to those found in nuclear disaster zones. — Steven Magee

Jet Aircraft Quotes By George Reisman

Today, in the Twenty-First Century, an age of jet aircraft, personal computers, wireless telecommunications, laser surgery, and incipient space travel, the mentality with which many presumably educated, intelligent people approach matters of economics and business is, however astonishing it may seem, still that of the Dark Ages. — George Reisman

Jet Aircraft Quotes By Bob Hope
