We have to overcome four physical forces to fly, so do birds and bugs and anything else that wants to soar. So, what are those forces? Why does the shape of a wing make a difference in flight? Guest scientists will Frank Lester, education coordinator for the aeronautics division of the Idaho Transportation Department and Pilot Lori MacNichol-Gregory answer students’ questions about flight.
