So you want to run the sun gear @ 20krpm have the planet carrier run @ 2krpm and use the ring gear as reversed secondary take off ? then: there is this planetary gear differential around, symmetric.

I don't think this assumption holds much water given that the 779 has at least 5% improvements in both SFC and L/D, the only way for such a figure to pan out would be for the 779 to be significantly heavier than the 77W at takeoff, which would imply something like a 10% OEW delta between the 779 an...Jump to post

Well the boom is where the shock cone ( initially rather flat gaining conicity with speed )

My guess would be that FH shock cone never touches populated areas.
the initial ascend is vertical and only later turning slowly towards horizontal.
Seeing that A320 so low without slats and flaps is a bit concerning ! This is clearly photoshopped! :) Wouldnt the Flight control software have to be modified in the real world for the A320 to be able to do this sort of thing? Why?
