Could this single important discovery and simple experiment end the ball earth madness for you also ?

I have used levels most of my life and never thought of doing what this guy did to prove flat earth. For people like jackblack i await your excuses and explanation for this.  I wondered why the artificial horizon in airplanes are kept in a glass ball and think its just more indoctrinating and imprinting.

This guy is going to change the world view literally

The poor dog didn't want to be caught any where near that joke of an experiment lol. Can't say I blame him.

Want proof that the earth isn't flat? How about a time lapse of the control stick of an airplane in straight and level flight? See? If the earth was a pizza he would have to be constantly banking either right or left or he would soon be headed for the ice wall! But look! No banking consistently in one direction! Clear evidence that the earth cannot be flat!

Why should the bubble in the level ever move?
Gravity always points towards the center of the earth. Hang a plumb bob off the ground. The plumb bob shows you the direction of down. If your level is perpendicular to that direction, the bubble stays in the center of the level. If your level is at any angle other than 90 degrees from the direction of down, the bubble moves to one side. An airplane continuously pitches down to maintain level flight throughout. Said another way, the rate at which the pitch angle of the plane changes is the same rate at which the angle of the plumb bob changes in fixed space. If that is happening, then the plane is following the curve without gaining or losing altitude.

Oh yeah this is super convincing, not.  Jesus, how hard is it to grasp the concept of level being perpendicular to the center of gravity, how a plane actually flies, or the fact that you, that level, the entire plane is so tiny when compared to the size of the Earth this doesn't prove anything.  Hell I doubt it could give you any reasonable accuracy as to the pitch of the plane on takeoff or decent.
If this is the gold star evidence for FE, then I weep for the lost hours of time people put into this BS notion.

Another point. A plane has more ways of altering its altitude than pitch change. It's possible to remain level while landing. In fact, planes are almost always pitched slightly up as they are touching down.

What on earth do you mean with "the artificial horizon in airplanes are kept in a glass ball"?
There are no secrets about how an artificial horizon works, though there has been plenty of garbage by flat earthers on the topic!

No, he's not! All he shows is that the plane is flying level. Big deal!

Quote from: Semnomic
Of course, his level stays showing horizontal! Vertical on earth points to the centre and the local horizontal is always at 90° to that. End of story.

It could be said "that the plane tilts down", but that is nothing more than staying at the same altitude.
And it is so slight that any control movements are completely swamped by the little changes needed to compensate for air movement, etc.
You might look at:

Do aircraft pitch down to follow the curvature of the Earth? Wolfie6020
and Wolfie6020 flies corporate jets all over that world, so might really know what he is saying.

Yeah dumb experiments like this don't help FE "evidence" gatherers. I'm all for people seeking out evidence, but let's aim a bit higher, for the the harder stuff that matters. As other people have said here, it remaining level means very little. Consider this - would you want to be on a plane that constantly dips up and down? No. And clearly no one's watched a plane take off or land - the nose is always up.

This is wrong and plane stupid on so many levels
Why would the plane even need to pitch down?
The pilot doesn't need to correct anything.
see it like this:
Plane flies level. a certain speed of the plane corresponds with a certain lift resulting in a certain height.
Due to curvature the plane would fly higher, but it can't because higher means less lift with the same speed, resulting the plane laws of nature correct this all by itself. The pilot doesn't have to correct anything.
The bubble of the spirit level doesn't have to leave the center at all. Even if the plane does need to pitch down to correct...you won't be able to see that with a spirit level because the direction of "gravity" also changes. the center of mass is no longer straigt down, but somewhere behind you. by pitching down you make sure that the center of mass is straight below you again.
In other words: the spirit level shows "level" BECAUSE the plane "pitches" down.

Are you serious?
Firstly, how did they guy figure out what the angle of that tray was relative to the plane?
For all we know the plane could have been pointing significantly up or down the entire time.
Not only that, this guy might want to learn what level means. Having the bubble move around a bunch is not an indication that it is level.

Regardless, why does the plane need to tilt down?
If it was going to go higher (to follow the straight line) it would need to go to a higher gravitational potential, which would require it to have more lift than weight.
If they balance the lift and weight adequately, they continue flying straight.

What he would actually need is a rotational accelerator/gyroscope which is capable of detecting a turning motion.

This is my favorite quote for more than one reason.

I KNOW RIGHT?! I'd love to hear from you about how airplanes fly and variances in air density are explained in the version of "gravity is really just density" model you subscribe to. Maybe a topic for a different thread though.

Yes I've been thinking about this problem and the way he carried out his experiment has problems.

Trying to see if the plane dips in this way won't work.  You cant take a NY made spirit level and expect it to work in CA.
I would take an educated guess that every state & country has its own spirit level set to "level" for that location and thats his error.
