Erm...look at the website, and show me flights which all appear 8 hours late. I'd like to see the load of delays there. Go ahead, liar, show me.

You won't see many 8-hour delayed flights because most planes visit the Southern continents traveling a North-South route from the populated industrial continents. Flying North-South on a Flat Earth map would give you an identical distance to the Round Earth model.

It's only the very few eastward or westward flights between the southern continents that would experience a delay.

They weren't covering anything up. They were just making up data for the RE to steal science grants from the government, just as NASA does now.

Oh, so now you rescind the previous statement? Fail. And there are East-West flights. Take a look. Try major population centers, like Sydney to Delhi, or Sydney to Santiago/Mexico. Try it. You don't have to fly purely East-West. Just enough to show how badly you fail.

I have quite a bit flying experience, both as a pilot, and a passenger. I've flown to pretty much every continent, and i've had delays, sometime as much as up to an hour. In the air. None of this 8 hours late that seems to be the 'proof' of a flat earth. I've done visual flying, and instrument rating hours (you're right, the windshield is covered from the inside, and you have nothing but to guide you but instruments and a tightly clenched rectum) and i managed to make it back. Your FAQ says pilots are either too stupid to notice the difference, which i'd like to correct, or that they're in on it too. When i got my licence, i didn't get a lecture on 'the secret' and neither has any pilot i've met, and i've met a lot. Australia had a pilot strike a few years ago, and quite a few of these taxi-drivers were sacked out of hand. Not what i thought would've happened to people who could've blown it all out of the water by talking to the press. I thought they'd all be paid out to shut them up, after all they are the secret masters of the universe. or something. Incidentally, this is your theory, that you're trying, TRYING, to prove, so it is incumbent on YOU and YOU ALONE to provide ABSOLUTE SCIENTIFIC proof of your theory. You say flights would experience 8 hour delays, prove it. It's not for me to disprove, it's for you to prove. That's the scientific method. You can't say 1+1=3 and just keep waving your hands rather than support your claim. I want proper proof, provided by you Tom Bishop, actual proof, numbers, figures, interviews with people. Bring it to the table, or admit you're wrong, you're desperate and you've got nothing.

Sure.  But by saying that they were faking data related to the shape of the earth you're implying that the conspiracy's purpose was to hide the shape of the earth (thereby profiting).  Or can you cite anything not related to the shape of the earth that they "lied" about?

For the rare flight that does occur between those two extremities of the earth; along the courses between Sydney and Johannesburg exist enormous jet streams located at around 35,000 ft above the surface of the Earth. In the Southern Hemisphere there are both eastward and westward jet streams. By necessity, in relation to the polar front and subtropical jets, easterly jet streams in the Southern Hemisphere propagate at rates even faster than the westward ones. According to cubanology.com the winds in a jet stream regularly reaches speeds of over 400 mph. Airliners use these jet streams to faster reach a destination.

This variable contributes significantly to the travel time between Sydney and Johannedburg. While an airplane may have a rated cruise speed it can provide under its own power, the extreme winds of the jet stream adds enormously to the actual velocity of the plane over the surface of the Earth.

For every moment the plane stays in the jet stream it is being accelerated until it matches the surrounding velocity and momentum of the air around it. From there the plane can use the limits of its power to travel faster than the jet stream. Thus, six hours of travel time between Sydney and Johannedburg becomes extremely possible.

In general, the Flat Earth Society has found that winds are strongest just under the tropopause. If two air masses of different temperatures meet, the resulting pressure difference is highest along the interface.

These facts are a consequence of the thermal wind relation. The balance of forces on an atmospheric parcel in the vertical direction is primarily between the pressure gradient and the force of gravitation by acceleration is a balance referred to as hydrostatic. In the horizontal, the dominant balance outside of the tropics is between the Coriolis effect and the pressure gradient is a balance referred to as geostrophic.

Given both hydrostatic and geostrophic balance, the Flat Earth Society derives the thermal wind relation: the vertical derivative of the horizontal wind is proportional to the horizontal temperature gradient. The sense of the relation is such that temperatures decreasing polewards implies that winds develop a larger eastward component as one moves upwards. Therefore, the strong eastward moving jet streams are in part a simple consequence of the fact that the equator is warmer than the poles.

But really, nice work on the Bullshit. It's amazing that this jet stream didn't exist until proof came along. It's amazing. May I ask one question? What about the return trip?
