    Plain Truth About Plane Speeds

    When sitting high above the clouds aboard an *aircraft , most - if not ALL - of us are quite likely to've wondered how fast *it's flying in terms of mph. Anyway, I came across this interesting article:-

    Yes Arthur, just think if your plane was stationary the oncoming plane would be doing approx. 600 mph

    The only place I'd be happy with a plane being stationary is firmly on the ground

    As the average plane speed is 550mph the perceived speed of an approaching plane would actually be over 1100mph
