At four o'clock in the afternoon, JAT Flight 367 was flying at 10,149m over the Czech Republic on its way to Zagreb. A minute later, a bomb tore through the front baggage compartment of the DC-9, blowing the nose of the plane clean off. 28 people were on board. One of those people survived the fall.

Flying isn't my favourite thing in the world because I get so caught up in wondering how it all works. "Why is this giant aluminium tube even in the air?", "why is that guy so fidgety?", "why are the lights flickering?"... you get the point. I worry. But this short, sweet explanation of how a plane actually flies puts me at ease.

Thank you, physics.
