This created a strategic vacuum along the Indian thrust line as there was no major armored force available to contest the advance from Chawinda to Pasrur.
The Cessna is designed so that its thrust line is positioned at or slightly below its center of gravity while the Lake's thrust line is well above its CG.
But what we really want to get at is the relationship of the thrust line to the airplane's center of gravity (CG), and how the two can interact.
Since the only major changes to the configuration involve the placement of its engines, it's a fair presumption that the MAX's relationship between CG and thrust line changed.
The northeastern limb of thrusted Abbottabad anticline is relatively normal and less faulted while the southwestern limb is overturned and shows active thrust line. The maximum throw (vertically displaced more than one kilometer) of this anticline is observed in the southwestern limb ofBalakot-Muzaffarabad area.
This thrust line generally trending from Muzaffarabad to Balakot, indicating this as an active thrust.
"More [important] for landing is the good design and engineering relative to the placement of the thrust line," he said.
The most recent Mark II conversion of the 206 using the Rolls Royce 250-B-17/2 engine has a lower thrust line, better visibility over the nose, plus the turbine reliability and power that's unmatched by a piston.
One appendix describes how you can carry out your own 'thrust line analysis' of an arch, while another tabulates Lancaster's analysis of rubble samples from key buildings to show that building materials were being imported into Rome from Vesuvius throughout the study period.
Referring to Figure 2, also on the opposite page, the larger the arm "a" of the asymmetric thrust line, the larger the zero-sideslip bank angles must be.
