1. F= M x D

you are 100% correct. All forces need to be balanced. I think in my haste I over-simplified the problem,

if they bother to do it at all. Could well be that they wanted to go out with a bang, but there's no guarantee that you'll die in a straight line car wreck.

It might have been deliberate but I'm thinking more towards a lack of reaction time to hit the brakes and a gross underestimation of speed, required braking distance and the distance to the end of the runway. I think they pushed for a high top end speed and didn't leave distance for braking and paid the price.
4. Last thing watched on netflix..................

I watched Orville it was better than most of the carp they broadcast as new show. Not a must see, but it was ok.
5. F= M x D

Take moment about he bottom right corner. Are you saying that the load from the top is dependent on the width "X"? The load applied to the top is 100*x with a moment arm of x/2 and is in the negative direction. The side moment is fixed at 50 with a moment arm of 12 ft and is positive. Solve for equilibrium -(100x)(x/2)+(50)(12) = 0 x= sqrt(12)

13. Last thing watched on netflix..................

Me, my wife and son started watching Ozark over the weekend. We're almost done with season 1. Can't say I'm hooked but it's ok. I like stranger things better.
