Question by happydawg: I have to fly next month and have never done it before. What do you see out the window?
I am supposed to get on a Boeing 737 and fly from Indianapolis to LasVegas and have never been on a moving plane in the air before. Tell me about what I will see, feel, hear and everything you know. If we fly over my home area, will I be able to see the familiar landmarks if it is a clear day.

Being on a plane feels pretty much like being on a bus. If you look out window, you might just see clouds, but you can see land if it’s clear. I always find it hard to pick out landmarks. Sometime the pilot will announce some really special landmarks. Sometimes there will be turbulence, but it isn’t scary. Just think of it as bumps in the road. Enjoy your flight! And bring a snack. Food on flights can really be terrible sometimes, but they will have free soda, juice, water, etc.

Was the Diesel Train made before the Electric Train?

Question by : Was the Diesel Train made before the Electric Train?
Was the Train powered by Diesel and Electricity made before the fully Electric-powered Train or vice-versa? Because I read up some stuff on google and I found some things that said the electric train was made in the 1880’s and the diesel train not until the 1920’s…? Help?

They seam to be historically intertwined so it’s the old chicken or egg type question. I don’t know.
