Re: [dpreguy] Why Groundspeed?

In reply to:
Dear Mr Kallend,
Don't be so quick to insult. If you are correct, a cement block tossed out of the plane will soon achieve 80 knots speed across the ground, as your theory is that it will reach "equalibrium" in 6 to 8 seconds.

Nope, that is NOT what I said. My comment related to SKYDIVERS, not concrete blocks. A concrete block will still eventually reach an effective equilibrium but it will take a little longer.

Your comments show a distinct lack of knowledge of basic physics.
