Oops..I was busy wondering why a student like yourself was having trouble with the treadmill issue...

Specially with your understanding of thrust

Yes, the plane would fly
I didn't read any other post because i would get mad.
We had a big argument about this at new years. The plane would fly because its not the wheels that are moving the plane.. its the jets. I am right and whoever said no is wrong... Just admit it.

That'* because the air is moving with the earth, and the plane is moving relative to the wind.

I hate to say it but there are a lot of stupids here. BTW the truck will weigh less if the birds were in the air. The cages weight would still be there tho.
