"Question Everything - Part 4"

"Hidden In Plane Site"

If Jets run on compressed air, not jet fuel, then they can fly perpetually. Why are there no images of inside a wing to show the fuel bladders and required pipes to move the fuel quickly between wings during flight? How can the Airbus 380 carry 89,000 gallons of fuel in its wings which equal eighty three 3,000 pound cars?

Full Credit to: JoneS SenoJ /videos Enslaved by Media How many gallons of fuel does a a380 hold? Airbus A380 more fuel-efficient than a Toyota Prius. The A380 arrived in the U.S. today. The plane can carry 81,890 gallons of fuel and flies 8000 nautical miles, i.e., it burns approximately 10 gallons of fuel per nautical mile or 9 gallons per statute mile.Mar 19, 2007 A plane like a Boeing 747 uses approximately 1 gallon of fuel (about 4 liters) every second. Over the course of a 10-hour flight, it might burn 36,000 gallons (150,000 liters). According to Boeing's Web site, the 747 burns approximately 5 gallons of fuel per mile (12 liters per kilometer). JET FUEL - Fire Engineering › Home › More Suburban Firefighting Oct 1, 2002 - Commercial jet fuel is a pale yellow liquid with a petroleum odor. It has an auto-ignition temperature of 410°F (210°C). Its explosive limits are from 0.6 to 4.7 percent by volume in air. Coupled with its flash point, this means that at 100°F there is enough vapor in the air to reach the lower explosive limit so that . Wings If we add together the weight of the two wings (88,000 pounds), the weight of the fuel stored between the wings (45,000 pounds), and the weight of the heavily reinforced cross-section of the fuselage between the two wings, we come up with a figure, I would guess, somewhere in the neighborhood of 150,000 pounds. Since a fully fueled Boeing 757-200 weighs in at roughly 200,000 pounds (127,000 pounds for the aircraft and 75,000 pounds for the fuel), a little rudimentary arithmetic reveals that fully 3/4 of the aircraft’s weight is distributed in the cross-section between the wing tips. The bulk of the fuselage, which appears to be the most massive portion of the plane, in reality accounts for only about 25% of the aircraft’s total weight. google a380 fuel bladders6 Airliners are predominantly made of aluminum with some composite components. But Boeing is blazing a trail with the mostly composite Dreamliner, promoting the material’s strength and lightweight properties to airlines seeking fuel-efficiency. In 2012, Airbus announced another increase in the A380's maximum take-off weight to 575 t (1,268,000 lb), a 6 t increase from the initial A380 variant and 2 t higher than the increased-weight proposal of 2010.
