A video presentation of how a wing generates lift, dispelling the old “myth of the 2 particles that must rejoin”, and then shows how the air is also affected upstream (not just downstream)…
BGD – Simulation driven design of paragliders (starting at 3:39). Presentation by Tom Lolies.
I suffered from years of lift and drag misconceptions, as was clearly revealed to me by the below video link. Aeronautical engineers know well how to make an airplane fly, but the why still contains much mystery. I’m just glad it works.
