Example of downwash behind a plane
In discussing the
physics that act on a wing, many believe that it is just
a view of Newton’s third law being applied, that for
every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
As to who which
principle explains flight, Bernoulli's or Newton's
principle, it is up for debate. But many think that both
principles are correct to the explanation of lift and
are just different views to the same problem.
