Not lookin for flames here but I noticed something a little whacky last night.

I blew off the port wing from an IL4 or a DB(Whatzit?) last night. Lacking one wing, the doomed bomber began to spin towards earth.

ONE PROBLEM: The spin turned into the wing that was still there. Correct me here, but shouldn't the remaining wing's lift spin the plane the other way?

Sorry but I have no supporting track to support my claim~!

you would think so, but i wonder if engine torque might have a say in it as there is not effect from the other wing and engine to counteract it any more? bet the crew were not sitting in it going ohhh were spinning the wrong way round hehehehe /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
