Ive often wondered why planes did'nt have side mirrors to help the pilots see whats around them.

Someone says that 'shaking' (engine vibration http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif) would render them quite useless. That sounded strange to me.

because the one on the roof is convex so it does the same...... jets have them, the jag has 2 inside the hood on eitherside.... If they were on stalks lol like a car you would feel stupid, but hey lets have indicators too on stalks like the moggie minor http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif you would also have a problem being dazzled by them if the sun is on your six...
