Examples of airplane in a Sentence

  1. Priscilla Moreland:

    Doesn’t the Air Force think that with the proper training I or my peers couldn’t excel as drone pilots? right now, the minimum height-limit starts at 5’4?. My daughter is 5’2?. What difference does it make what height you are when you are flying a drone? You are not actually sitting in an airplane.

  2. Whitfield Growdon:

    We don't have data that a parachute will save you when you jump out of an airplane.

  3. Philipp Oettershagen:

    In general it's a very simple thing, what you have is batteries, very energy-dense batteries, and solar modules and the whole concept is that the battery basically gets recharged over the day and then supplies the whole energy during the night.

  4. Tim Pawlenty:

    The party is fractured, which isn't unusual for political parties and they almost always come back together. But this could test the outer limits of that tradition, if the Republican Party were an airplane and you're looking out the window, you'd see some pieces of the surface flying off. And you'd be wondering whether the engine or a wing is next.

  5. Dennis Tajer:

    If The FAA says The FAA's safe, Boeing says The FAA's safe, American Airlines say The FAA's safe, we are the ones who have to stand there with them and say we agree... or we don't agree, we want to say yes, but we will not be forced to say yes. I'm on that airplane as the last line of defense for our passengers.
