The real reason: Because the FCC president valued peace and quiet during a flight! Phone calls were banned back in 1991 when cell phones were literally the size & weight of a brick and the flight instruments were sensitive to them back then. Currently plane equipment is less sensitive to EMI, and the FCC since had allocated phone call frequencies at the 800Mhz band. So, in reality the Avionics field are the best bullshitters in existence. I hate flying now more than ever!

Here is how a plane works: the turbine engines will use jet fuel to spin with a combustion to spin the blades, the blades will give air to more and more until it is directed out of a nozzle to speed the air, then the air will push the jet engine the other way creating thrust. Then the wings will have alot of air going past them and the air will be angled to a different direction so then it creates a pressure difference and it will make the plane go up and the other way around to go down so then the rudder gives itself angles to turn and the back will be the other way and go up or down. On landing the landing gear will go down and the flaps will go down creating drag and slowing the plane down. Then the jet engines will angle its air the other way creating reverse thrust and that also helps slow down the plane, lastly the landing gear also has brakes and thanks for reading!

I'm mostly wondering where they got the set from I mean is this from an Airline museum, some Hangar or whatever even seriously how in the heck were you able to film this within an airliner cabin (because I'll be honest this looks way too accurate to just be a set piece but I could be wrong on that I don't even know anymore)

Ted Phillips (5 months ago)
One reason has to do with how cell phones tie into cell towers. On the ground, the cell system can easily determine which tower to asign you. In the air, many cell towers can be equally close to where you are and a "switching war" ensues. Then again, there's that series of Dilbert cartoons where the pointy haired boss lands the plane with Excel !

If i would be on this plane i would probably ask what frequency the plane is on because i don't think that phones use frequenzies for airports and departure control towers because i am quite sure that the airplane frequenzies are stuff like: 113.48 and i dont know if it is Megahertz, or microhertz

Actually, there's no reason to turn off anything during takeoff or landing, or at any time during flight. Hi, I'm Adam Conover and this is Adam Ruins Everything! *cue intro* Technically, your device does generate a magnetic field, but only a very small, very weak one, and what your told is that this "interferes", what exactly this means depends on who you ask, sometimes it "interferes with communications". The other common excuse is that it interferes with the fly by wire system (electronic signaling to the control surfaces) on the plane, because it induces current in the wires. Both of these are silly for two reasons, first being that the field your device produces is tiny, and both of these problems rely on a changing magnetic field, and the magnetic field produced by even a large laptop isn't changing all that much. Furthermore, interfering with radio communications by accident is really hard, the only time it's likely to happen is if you have a broken microwave, and that's not the sort of thing you run inside of a plane unless you're a flight attendant, and even if you did, the interference bubble would still be too small to be a problem for the communications of the plane. The other issue is silly because fly by wire systems use something called STP (shielded twisted pair in this case, though that is the most ambiguous acronym ever), which is so resistant to induction, you'd be very hard pressed to interfere with it even if you tried. In the end, I'm not even totally sure why these measures are in place, I'm tempted to say it makes people feel safer, except it doesn't, because it makes the plane feel more fragile than it is.

They should have asked why they don’t build the cabin in a faraday cage with the instruments outside the cage, which would make it completely impossible for any electromagnetic radiation to interfere with the systems.

Justin Bayless (5 months ago)
You technically dont have to turn off any of your electronic devices on an airplane. People once thought this interfered with the radio signals but was disproven and the rule was lifted. Next time someone asks you to turn it off, show them the facts and they'll leave you alone. I guess now its so you'll listen to the important stuff they have to say in order for you to actually survive in case of a crash. Which by the way happens less often than getting electricuted in your bathtub. Just dont distract the pilots and you'll be fine. Just remember that cruising altitude is about 30,000 feet in the air. Thats really high. Good luck!

This video is actually not wrong. No one knows how planes fly. The leading theory is that the wings create lift through pressure differences but that has kinda been disproven so no one really knows how planes fly, just that they do.

Want to know why? Because take off and landing are the two most dangerous segments of the flight and the flight crew want you paying attention in case something goes wrong.
