Aerospace Engineer Question

  1. Dec 1, 2005 #1
    Does anybody know of a book that addreses/talks about how Prandtl showed that an aircraft passing overhead will leave a "footprint" on the earth in the form of an extremely small pressure change over a huge area?

    There's a thread about that around here somewhere, from maybe a month or so back.
