No because the air under the bird is forced against the planes floor pushing it at an equal force down. (took this way too seriously )

No. Cause the earth is flat and gravity doesn't exist 😜

From a physics standpoint, I would argue that any point during which the bird is gaining relative altitude, the plane weighs more than originally because the bird is forced to overcome gravity. If the bird is in level flight the plane would weigh the same as the bird on the ground because the force from the air downward would equal the birds weight. If the bird is coming to land, then the plane should weigh less at that instantaneous point in time because the bird is applying less downward force than its actual weight.

Depends. Is it an African or European swallow?

NO BECAUSE THE WHEELS ARE SPINNING FREE AND DONT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE SPEED OF THE PLANE.. did I win?

The definition of weight is a term used in Physics and is measured in Newton’s to determine the force of something pushing/ pulling something else. If the bird is flying all the time it is not pushing on anything and therefore the weight does not include that of the bird.

If everone in an airplane jumps up at the same time does it weight less?

What if the plane was on a treadmill? 🤔

If yes , all the planes flying around earth should add weight to earth . So I guess NO is the answer

The real question is does the bird fly at 500 knots

I just have to clarify before I answer. Are we inverted?

Tell the bird he has been advised to remain seated with his seatbelt on as turbulence is sometimes unexpected.
