Euclidean Geometry

The Plane geometry learned in high school, based upon a few ideal, smooth, symmetric shapes.

Euclidean Geometry

A system of geometry that deals with objects on a plane. Its theory is based on five postulates, from which a number of theoretical proofs are derived.

By comparison, a real plane's thrust (forward motion) comes from its engine.
Police have quoted Nishizawa as saying his hobby was to play flight simulation games and that he wanted to pilot a real plane. He also told investigators he wanted to fly under Tokyo Bay's Rainbow Bridge, which is only about 50 meters above the water, and to loop the loop.
"I got on the real plane to come home to Juneau," I snarled in self defense.
The data packages used to mimic the real plane can cost over a million dollars.
In the next few months, dozens of American Airlines pilots will sit in the simulator and learn the nuances of the controls before they can fly the real plane, which the airline will begin using for passenger flights early next year.
I think if it was hokey in some way, from the moment it started, people would go: 'That's not a real plane, that's not a real airport,' and the whole thing would kind of fall apart, especially since we're quite larger-than-life characters, so we need it to be real-life to bounce off.
So we found a real plane in the UK and a guy willing to fly it up here for a gripping scene where the Germans fire at the land girls, and it worked out cheaper than trying to create it with special effects.
We call N a totally real submanifold of M(c) if each tangent 2-plane of N is mapped into a totally real plane in M(c).
It's his 30th birthday in June and I've heard that you can book a go on a flight simulator, which is like flying a real plane. Do you know any companies who can arrange this?
The MetalStrike Series joysticks have 13 programmable buttons, an eight-way "point of view" hat switch, and a turbo function for auto-repeat so the user can fly their aircraft just like a real plane. Each joystick has a four-axis design including the rudder, which is ideal for simulated flight games and provides Aileron, Elevator, Throttle, and Power controls.
