    There is one huge potential drawback to using the wings as fuel storage. It doesn’t handle corrosion all that well.
    A 737 operator on the Hawaiian Islands wouldn’t just have to contend with increased rate of fuselage fatigue from repeated pressurizations, but also corrosion caused by the salt water in the moisture in that part of the world.

    is this the same as an auxillary fuel tank? The new 737 MAX 9 & 10 has one auxiliary fuel tank but this makes no sense as it should be an even number?

    Have you seen them video's that claim airlines are lying to everyone about how much fuel these jets actually use?. These videos are all over the internet. The people that are saying this are claiming these jets use extremely very little fuel to run these engines and it all has to do with air only. We all know it has something to do with fuel and air, but in these videos these guys are saying that 90% of your ticket cost is for fuel that these jet engines are not really using and the airlines are charging people for nothing. They also say its impossible for these wings to hold that much fuel and the weight of the fuel. Now I have worked in factories and seen first hand knowledge of the extreme strength of metal structures under pressure. It is more then possible that these wings can take the load.

    Thank you for a very informative session about fuel storage in the wings. One thing that came to mind was, by storing fuel in the wings we avoid any direct contact of fuel during landing or emergency landing as the landing gears prevent the wings from touching the runway thus avoiding any fire.

    If you really spoke the truth, you'd be unemployed tomorrow. Jet planes fly with free energy. You all believe that kerosene is stored in the wings. How much weight would a wing of the A 380 have to withstand? Put a tank on the wing with the same weight. Let's see how long the wing can withstand it. Free energy is the solution, you all pay your expensive flight ticket for kerosene which is never filled into the aircraft. Also the other fees are much too expensive. Captains get paid more than enough money per month to keep their mouth shut. Do you all still believe the nonsense in this video. You all learn shit in school and at the universities. And then you think you're educated. You don't know anything. Free energy exists since nature exists.

    I have a question @MentourPilot, ive noticed that on the widebody aircraft that I work with mainly the B777-300er, A330-200, A350-900 and the A380-800 that fueling between the Airbus and Boeing is on opposite sides, is this brand specific or can both manufacturers refuel on either side?

  • opendebate
    opendebate महीने पहले

    The reason why the aircraft stores fuel in the wings are due to no space left in the body itself cause it's been dedicated for cargo. The only viable option is on the wings. Since you have put it on the wings, you have to maintain balance on both sides. duh!

    The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird was NOT a fighter aircraft, but rather an unarmed Mach3+ strategic RECONNAISSANCE plane. The Blackbird is well known in these parts of the world, since Bodø Airport BOO/ENBO was one of the bases used to fly over Soviet Airspace, photographing ICBM missile bases and other installations.

    Where does the fuel flow out of the tanks from? Does it matter the orientation of the aircraft whether fuel can be pumped out, as opposed to the air that starts to fill in as it becomes more empty?

    Hey! Excellent video, hands down!
    I've a question, what about the mid flight scenario? fuel is being used at a constant rate so the gross mass of the each wing is bound to decrease at a linear rate. You justified by the 3rd reason that fuel being stored in the wings is crucial for the structural integrity. In engineering terms, by considering both of the wings as cantilevers, the mass of the fuel counters the upwards bending moment because of the lift thus, as you said, maintaining the structural integrity. This counter effect should decrease as fuel is being used, then what equalises that bending moment( later bending stress) mid air?

    I'm an Aircraft mechanic and I always wanted to be an airline pilot. I just didn't have the aptitude for the maths and physics. Aeronautical Science was the most difficult subject for me in my mechanic exams. It is all maths and Physics. But I have managed to work on planes for many airlines and manufacturers over the years. I especially enjoyed my 7 months inside the wings of the a380's at Airbus Hamburg carrying out the rib foot adaptation. And buying a house and a brand new car cash from this job made it especially worthwhile.
