Nice Matt! FWIW, I never understood the issue with the plane taking off. Anyone with common sense can figure that out.

Good work on the explanation though! Just completely confused on why anyone would find that hard to understand, and why it lasted for that many pages?

Also, as a side note, you did remember correctly both a quadratic function, and the quadratic formula (going off of the fact that there were question marks in parenthesis)
