There are many air currents in the atmosphere and they are relatively stable. The latter over the Atlantic has become extremely thick in the last few days, as a result of the storm Ciaran.
An American Airways flight. 186 from New York to London reached a maximum speed of 1,253 kilometers per hour one hour after noon on November 1. This was pointed out by the news portal CNN, which brought and gave examples of the extreme speeds achieved in the last few days on air lines. AA’s record flight was only slightly slower and unchanged. 222 Emirates from Dallas, USA to Dubai. And thanks to that, the whistle blew at two o’clock against full flight.
The speed of sound under normal conditions is about 1,225 kilometers per hour, so variable flights and many others can seem supersonic. However, this does not correspond to reality, because the conditions in which the records were set are far from normal. A phenomenon known in English as a jet stream was responsible for this: it is an air stream that helps or hinders the aircraft depending on the direction in which the jet stream is flying.
The current forms about 8 and 11 km above the earth’s surface and blows from the west to the entrance, explains Sara Tonksov from the British Meteorological Agency Met Office. Airplanes in the travel case can easily get into it, add.
Jet stream psob and audio. If you are flying downstream, the speed is not at the same level as the surface of the water (these are the normal conditions in a nutshell). Although transport aircraft sometimes fly at speeds that are against the supersonic tables, it is far below the speed at which sound travels around them. dn sonic pressure, the primary effect of breaking the speed of sound, cannot occur.
How much of a difference does the jet stream make? Here are two C-17s at roughly the same altitude heading in opposite directions over eastern Canada. https://t.co/V6dmfbC6X4
