Im just curious, not trying to argue or anything but i have a question for flat earthers.....
6 days a week there is a direct flight from Sydney Australia to Johannesburg. Since its a direct flight, so there are no stops aling the way.
In realty, the distance of the flight is 11,060km. And since the shortest distance between 2 points is a straight line, planes fly straight between their destinations
On a flat earth, The straight line distance between Sydney and Johannesburg is 23,419km.
In reality The planes they use are Boeing 747 400s and they have a maximum range of 13,438km. So ON A FLAT EARTH if their max range is 13,438km, and the distance between the 2 places is 23,419km, those planes could not make the entire trip without stopping for Fuel, however, its a direct flight and it never stops for anything. .
In reality, the plane never flys over any land after it leaves Australia and before it reaches Africa, nothing but water.. On a flat earth, the straight line distance, the 23,419 that i mentioned, would cross over papua new guinea, China, TheHimalayas, and India, part of the middle east and eastern africa.
it takes about 13 hours and 20 minutes. On a flat earth, to fly direct the average speed of the plane would have to be 1,756km an hour. However, the average speed of the plane in reality is 830km an hour. On a flat earth, the plane would need to fly twice as fast, twice as far and over land..if the earth is flat please explain why this is
