But the black smoke only appears when you start to accelerate, not when you have reached high speed, right?
And in the photo we see that the plane has left the deck, which means the ship is no longer at low speed.
That's exactly the problem, you can't start accelerating when the plane is already on takeoff, but it should be some time before the takeoff operation.
But we're not talking about whether the aircraft can take off or not.
But precisely because the carrier acceleration process is slow, acceleration should have started before takeoff operations, not waiting until mid-takeoff to start adding fuel to the new boilers.
So I said "hard to say"
I'm confused now, what exactly are you trying to say? I just posted a picture of the Liaoning at full speed with no black smoke.
No, I'm not, I'm just saying that the cause of the black smoke cannot be reasoned so simply.
Also, even if I imply that there is something wrong with the Liaoning somewhere, you can't dismiss it with a bunch of pictures of it without black smoke, just like when your car breaks down on the road, you can't use a video of your car driving normally before to convince yourself that there is nothing wrong with it.
Calling someone's opinion a willy-nilly rebutting doesn't add to the validity of your opinion.
You can design a very reasonable scenario for your theory, but it's just a theory you have, and it doesn't negate the possibility of other theories with one possible explanation.
All we have in our hands is a photo, neither the actual speed of the ship at that time nor the actual data of the engine work, all we can do is all kinds of speculations. I'm not saying your theory is wrong, I'm just saying "hard to say" because there are always other, more complex possibilities.
First of all, I did not say that any of my theories are more likely than others, I just said "hard to say" and that is to be dismissed.
Although I am not an engine engineer on an aircraft carrier, I do believe that there can't be only two scenarios of "black smoke" in the Liaoning's operations manual.
No, I didn't derail any thread, I just said "hard to say". And your arbitrary and rude way of rejecting any opinion that disagrees with you, for reasons I don't understand, is what is most likely to derail a thread.
Talk about arbitrarily rejecting any opinion that people actually took an effort in humouring you in spite of you not having a single constructive counter and rudely flooding this thread like someone who only cares about having the last word.
Again, not the place for this kind of exercise. Stop it already.
