I find this answer to be very valuable: it demonstrates the method used to get to the answer, not just the answer itself. Which is more valuable? I value the method.

I find that dupes are like symlinks. I often get to the good stuff by googling the dupes!

Though I agree that this is a physics education question, not a physics question, it implies a greater "Why is physics traditionally taught this way" question that is pertinent to both physicists and those learning physics. So pertinent, and in fact fundamental, that I consider this to be one of the best questions to be asked on this site.

@MooingDuck: That is because I ask if the worker can prevent the plane from sliding further, i.e. when it stops between slides. In the beginning of the video, it can be seen that the plane slides a bit, then stops, before it starts to slide again.

Actually, the nosewheel does seem to be a bit further from the main gear than is the center of area of the vertical stabilizer.

Terrific analysis, thank you! I'm happy to see that the little blue jacket man, had he been equipped and knowledgeable, actually stood a chance after all!
