Description

Do planes land with their nose pointing downwards? Well, let's find out the facts in this episode.
 
The nose of an airplane is like the tip of an arrow, that determines where the plane goes. In fact, keeping the nose in the right direction and position is vital to the aircraft's overall performance. The nose-up posture helps the plane to land on the runway more smoothly and minimizes the risk of the nose wheel making the first contact with the ground. Hence in reality, the nose of the plane is pointing upwards when it lands.
