Jonathan Corum has set about to answer a timeless question.

After spending some time last month trying to develop alternate graphic presentations for kinematic ratios in winged flight, I decided to try to answer one of the timeless questions of science: just what is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?

I won’t even pretend to have completely read, much less understood his findings, but it’s about time somebody tackled this. If you have no idea what I’m talking about here’s a hint.

Thanks Leo.



  1. The airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow ?

    5…………… 3

    The airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow is most definitely 5…………..
