    And the airplane wants to stay in place, 600mph wont be enough when the topspeed is 300mph it will have to be more like 50000 mph. @Alienbeef0421

    Yeah but the rpm is variable by wheel size and by the barings that are in the wheels @Alienbeef0421

    @Luuk2909 random guessing.... A grasscutter spins at 4000rpm, and to achieve 4000rpm u need at least 600mph of speed for traction to be enough

    @Luuk2909 you have to hit 600mph just for that. The wheel has to be spinning at 3000rpm

    @Luuk2909 I know a way to get 30mph on flatland. (maximum gear, pedaling like no tomorrow on a street bike)

    no but i have wondered about something similar, i would like to know what would happen with an deflated tire and then trying to ride on it so fast that by the G forces the tire gets it own shape back by just G forces winning from gravity, i am wondering to just get my school bike and try it, i know a mountain were i can hit 60 kmp/ 36 mph. @ForeverPie

    @Luuk2909 have you ever wondered how a wheel can take so many G's from spinning that fast?

    @iwannabeelected unless if it's amphibious and the treadmill is on a water current.

    Well there could be another way a treadmill could stop a plane, by spinning so fast that there is more frinction pushing backwards then the plane can produce thrust! @iwannabeelected

    Yeah cause wheels XD, it isnt the wheels that are powerd but it forces air, the extra rotation on the wheels cause for no to very little difference. Basic physics XD @ForeverPie
