Ground Effect - The Ground Effect (or Wing in Ground Effect) is a natural phenomenon that occurs due to vortices caused by a difference in pressure between the two sides of a wing. This effect can be very dangerous to inexperienced pilots, but can be utilized by creative engineers. Nearly all pilots have experienced a strange phenomenon during landing. While everything is happening as it should during decent, a 'cushion' of air gets trapped below the wing during the last few meters to the runway. This throws off the rate of decent and can be dangerous if the pilot has already begun to flare up and decelerate for landing....   [tags: physics] 460 words

If women remain unaware of the health risks associated with the use and abuse of these unregulated drugs, rates of illness and even death are also likely to increase.

Flying - A few summers ago, a gentleman I had only just met offered me an afternoon plane ride. He was a retired lawyer and enjoyed any excuse to pilot his small plane. My friend Paul and I had nothing scheduled that day, so figured why not. After some debate about where to fly, north, south, or east, we settled on Mendocino, about halfway up the coast to Oregon. Within minutes we were bundled into a Beechcraft Bonanza and rattling off an absurdly short runway into the open sky. It was a spectacular day even by California standards as we swooped along the pine-clad rocky coastline and buzzed hermits at a hidden Buddhist monastery....   [tags: The Event That Changed My Life] 771 words

People ran swiftly across the sidewalks trying to get to their offices, homes, or just a place to stand for a few minutes and not be drenched by the falling downpour. Hailstones hit the ground with severity; water flowed along the street, coming down the steep mountain, where a sequence of modern and recently constructed ten-story buildings stood silently. From my apartment the splendid and astonishing view of a city with more than one million people dominated the front section; at the back, the relaxing sight of nature and old trees created a welcoming and loosening up sensation....   [tags: Personal Narrative, essay about myself] 887 words
