This was brilliant. LMAO. Actually we do know how planes fly, it's the Bernoulli's principle. *Who is the flight attendant?*

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.

It actually doesn’t interfere with the navigation it just causes feedback in the pilots headset sooooo

They tell you to turn them off for the fact that you might be distracted while listening to safety instructions so you won’t know what to do in an emergency

devices dont do anything to planes
Pixle (23 days ago)
The truth is that there is no reason. Airplane navigation systems and the embedded computers inside the airplanes have advanced so much in the past few decades that no electronics will interfere with the plane's electronics. If you want more details, there are many videos from reputable science and technology YouTube Channels that you can watch to learn more. I recommend the one by TechQuickie.

Every electronic device has to meet the requirements of the FCC I think it's section 15 or something like that stating that the device may receive interference but not interfere with other devices so in other words your cell phone and other electronics ain't gonna do shitt

The cellular data interferes but if you turn your device on airplane mode it won't interfere. They don't want devices on so you are not distracted.

You can use your electronics in airplane mode and also listen to ipod during flight they usually ask you to turn off the devices during take off and landing so u listen to the instructions and are aware in case of emergency ~

planes have shielded electronics in them and in the wires in the aircraft themselves. The only reason that people said not to use them is because some one early on thought it COULD interfere with flight operations. but it doesn't. There has NEVER been any instances where a plane was off course or landed on the wrong runway due to some one using a cell phone or other electronic device. think about it. that would me some one on the ground could figure out if I send this signal and beam it at the plane I can control it; This is utter nonsense, Myth Busters has a show on this and it flopped drastically. even the small planes are well protected from any interferance

Betty Brown (1 month ago)
I think I figured it out. During takeoff and landing is the most likely time a plane will crash so they ask you to turn off your devices so you are aware and ready if the plane does crash (90 second rule for fire. They don't want you to waste seconds fumbling with your phone) Just a theory
Aaron Tian (1 month ago)
Fact: I turned my phone on during a flight after the flight attendants told everyone to turn them off. Nothing happened. The truth is, they get annoyed by the notification sounds and rings from your phone.

Flight company in my country never asked the passenger to turn off electronic device, they just asked us to turn on the airplane mode. Maybe American did it to create a fake feeling for being safe in the plane?

It’s because the electronics create feedback for the pilots. Doesn’t really do anything it’s just a little annoying

The reason you can't have your phone on during a flight is simple. If you have connection to the internet and you can watch Netflix, or text your friends, or go through Instagram for 8 hours, then they cant sell you things, like Sky Mall knickknacks you don't need but are considering because you are so bored, or pay-to-connect WiFi, or pay-to-watch movies, etc. Basically, they know they have you locked in an unpleasant room for however many hours and humans would rather experience pain than boredom, and that includes financial pain. you would rather spend money on entertainment and miscellaneous things than to be bored. That's just my opinion though, and is not based in fact in any way shape or form.

I love how the mic/phone doesn't seem to matter. No matter how far from her face she holds it it still picks up her voice and broadcasts it at the same volume.
Onaraka (2 months ago)
If the flight attendant is true then all of our electronic devices would have been screwed up by now. Millions of people are using electronic devices and there's no reports of interference.
Jake Garrett (2 months ago)
Xx Warrior xX It may become a problem, 5.8Ghz is the new WiFi frquency, and 5.9 Ghz is the Radar for airplanes. I use 5.8Ghz for flying race quadcopters, but it technically requires a HAM radio liscence (I do). Those video transmitters screw with each other all the time, and you get shunned/banned from clubs for turning them on with others flying because if they are too close they scramble the other person's video reception causing them to crash since it mostly pics up yours because you are usually closer to the pilot.

I *never ever* turn off my electronic device on a plane
Michael Song (2 months ago)
Yeah, I don't get it either. I just turn off my phone (or put it on airplane mode) because I don't want to drain my battery. My phone continuing to search for non-existent network tends to drain my battery very quickly.

I clean airplanes for a living. So I got the answer to this question already. You know when medicine bottles that say things like may cause skin irritation or on cigarettes surgeon general's warning may cause cancer? Not all devices will mess up the instruments on the plane if it all. But there is a possibility that it will. They put people thousands of feet in the air they are going to run tests like crazy before they put people on planes. And a phone or some electrical device messed up the plains navigation one or more times during testing. So as a precaution a preventative measure they say no electric devices until after take off. As a precaution
