It’s impossible to see any curvature from an airplane (I made thousands of flights and never could see it). People that says otherwise are just trolling or plain stupid.

Well this flying involved seeing the ocean, which curvature you can see much easier because it's a relatively smooth surface.

A ship at see knows all about curvature, it was part of the grand scheme of military tactics, the hiding your vessel's masts below the horizon, wherein you would see the mast slowly raising out of the see as the ships get closer, until they were visible fully.

I don't care about your hearsay anyway heh

 Quoting: OurLifeIsALie


Well if you google up pictures from airplane windows, you can see it on them pictures too

Plenty of google results about seeing it, from pilots to scientists and whatnot..

Here's one from some news article:

"It is possible to see the effect of the curvature of the earth from sea level (ships disappearing over the horizon). To actually see the curvature directly (ie to be able to see the horizon as an arc, rather than a straight line) requires an altitude of over 50,000 feet."

Welp, dunno what to say, either you haven't flown high enough, or you weren't paying attention to details. Next time you take a flight that needs to go pretty high, pay close attention to it. I mean really look!

Thousands upon thousands of other folk seeing it.. you don't see it.. Where do you think the problem lies? Not with your eyes, nor theirs. It's only that you did not look

Felix Baumgartner, allegedly went up to that altitude (128,000 feet), and parachuted back to Earth.

I wonder if Felix saw the "Curve?"

Grabasstic Neil deGrabAss says that Felix Baumgartner COULD NOT HAVE SEEN THE ALLEGED CURVE OF THE EARTH, even at 128,000 feet of altitude!

WHY are we constantly told that commercial airline pilots, who routinely fly at only 35,000 to 40,000 feet, give or take, CAN SEE THE EARTH'S CURVATURE?

Hmmm?

Remember, that IMDB ac-tor and professional "Scientist", deGrabAss, IS the major face of "Popular Science", today!

Public spokeshole of contemporary popular Scientism, Neil deGrasse Tyson, says, unequivocally, that Felix Baumgartner, of the legendary "Red Bull" super-high parachute jump (at about 128,000 feet in altitude) COULD NOT HAVE SEEN ANY EARTH CURVATURE!

Or, are you going to argue that the Neil deGrabAss video linked in the OP is somehow faked?
