An aircraft is a vehicle that is able to fly by gaining support from the air. It counters the force of gravity by using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil, or in a few cases the downward thrust from jet engines. Common examples of aircraft include airplanes, helicopters, airships (including blimps), gliders, paramotors and hot air balloons.
A typical commercial passenger jet cruises at a speed of about 400 – 500 knots which is around 460 – 575 mph. Generally speaking, the higher the aircraft flies, the faster it can travel. It cruises at this speed at a height of about 36,000ft.
Well I'll be telling us about the top 10 fastest Planes in the world, most of us who have been on flight before will know that it has helped man in times of making up for Time, distances we used to cover in hours or probably days can now be completed in Minutes.
