Why Planes Don't Fly Over Antarctica

Have you ever wondered if there are things an airplane simply can’t or won’t do? It turns out that airplanes have strict rules regarding their pathways in the sky - for safety reasons, and for the sake of staying friendly with continental neighbors. Some of the places they’re not allowed to fly over might surprise you!
For example, planes won’t fly directly over the Earth’s poles and over the Pacific Ocean. You can't see planes over Tibet and over the City of Mecca. The airspace over Walt Disney World and Disneyland is also a no-fly zone. The same applies to Area 51 but we don't know why.

- Due to the windy and snowy conditions of the Antarctic mountains, this area is more prone to white-outs; the pilot wouldn’t be able to see at all!
- The Earth’s north pole has super strong magnetic fields that are constantly changing - their reach and direction can change by miles a year!
- Planes won’t fly over Tibet. This is largely due to the Himalayan Mountains. First of all, if a plane has to land in an emergency situation, mountains aren’t exactly the ideal impromptu runway.
- There’s a strong magnetic field in Makkah. As mentioned earlier, a magnetic field can cause navigational problems for pilots.
- George Washington’s House is considered a National Historic Landmark, so to prevent further damage to the historic home, even from air vibrations in the sky, the airspace above George and Martha’s house was declared a no-fly zone.
- In 2003, the Disney Corporation put “temporary” no-fly zones over both their parks, but somehow, they just stuck.
- Due to the many presidents and world-wide VIPs that visit Camp David, the airspace above the whole compound is a no-fly zone for safety reasons.
- Kennedy Space Center in Florida is a no-fly zone. There’s a lot of NASA and U.S. Airforce activity that goes on here - pretty important work. So safety for all parties is the top priority.
- Buckingham Palace is meant to protect the Queen and the royal family, so of course a no-fly zone was established above it.
- The Indian government place a no-fly zone above the area of the Taj Mahal in 2006 to safeguard this important historical building and the many tourists who come to witness its majesty.

    Doug Selsam Yeah, there is so much wrong with this video I had to stop somewhere. B-29’s flew over the Himalayas (near Burma not Tibet) in WWII. Mountains do create dangerous weather patterns but oceans create hurricanes/typhoons. We still fly over them, Pacific included BrightSide. Daocheng Yading Airport is higher than the tallest mountain in Colorado. Almost 2500 feet higher than the Lhasa airport.

    Planes don't fly over the center of earth because Mt Maru the (Magnetic Center) of "Flat Earth" and our Government have a treaty with the occupants/fallen ones of the area known as the N.Pole?, and also because compasses don't work there! Their is no Antarctica, that is a bald face lie! Wake up, quit falling for the MSM/TPTB/luciferians lies, leave the Programming behind, leave the Matrix and the lady in the Red dress!

    Wings do NOT generate lift via pressure differential. If they did, wings would be larger to create as much of a differential as possible, and planes would be far more efficient. Instead, they are not. The reason for this is in the name of the craft itself! Plane! The wings are actually a very fancy inclined plane. The angle of the wing relative to the fuselage is called the angle of attack, and it is THIS that creates lift. At the angle of attack, the wing pushes the air down under the plane, pushing the plane up. However, this also creates drag. The higher the angle of attack, the more drag is created due to vortices. The only time pressure differential has anything to do with lift is once the plane is at maximum cruising speed. At that point, the wing only has to keep the plane in level flight, and so the angle of attack becomes so minimal, the curvature of the wing actually provides most of the lift that is needed. Also, have you ever wondered why most airplanes have a vertical stabilizer? It is actually because of the wing. You see, the plane is controlled by flaps called control surfaces. When these surfaces are used, they create drag. There is more drag when the flap moves up than when it moves down. At the wing, this causes yaw, which the pilot then has to correct using the rudder. Efforts have been made to reduce this, and fly-by-wire systems now automatically adjust the rudder during a bank.

    Interesting video but.... Qantas Airlines offers flights from Australia to fly over Antarctica for a day during their summer months you can pay for if you do not want to step foot on Antarctica. The boarding passes will simple say "private flight" on them. There are Airlines that fly over the North Pole from Newark, New Jersey Airport to Hong Kong Airport. If there are no issues with turbulence, in relevance to flying over the oceans or high elevation areas. Heat, Australia and the Middle East taking flights anytime of the year with their heat. The map showing Amarillo, Texas looks more like the middle of Kansas. You can still see the Taj Mahal from the air of you are landing or leaving New Delhi, India (there are a few videos here on ALworks channels with people getting the shots on their devices or cameras.

    It’s because if there was a mechanical issue/emergency there aren’t suitable airports in Antarctica to make an emergency landing. I though everyone knew this? Planes that fly near the poles have to have the ability to stay 5 hours airborne during an emergency to reach a suitable airport.

    Never heard more BS than this video puts out. All modern planes use gyro compasses and GPS, they do still have magnetic compasses for redundancy. As for flying over all of the earths mountain ranges, it's done all of the time. Modern airliners cruise at 25, 000 to over 35,000 feet all of the time. There is some other reason that these airplanes are not allowed to fly over the poles.
