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!

This is a beautiful, well thought-out answer. It's answers like this that keep me on Physics.SE.

Unless you are Alan Stern, I stand by the assertion that Pluto is not affected by the fact that you are alive in any way!

comment Is a bomb's shockwave strong enough to kill?
In 2006 in Lebanon a mortar landed just about a meter or two away from me. I was wearing a helmet, combat vest, and very light (shrapnel) armor at the time. There was no shrapnel from the (possibly improvised) mortar, but the blast blew me back into the wall behind me and I was out for a few seconds. I'm still here to tell about it!
