take it to the bank and put it to bed.

point: the plane took off, in both the small-scale and full-scale. (propeller)

reason: you can turn the conveyor on as fast as you want, those wheels are just there to keep the plane from cutting grooves in the concrete. the plane will still move forward and take off. the propeller pushes on the air, as opposed to the wheels pushing on the ground. the two are completely different.
