Interplanetary Cessna - What would happen if you tried to fly a normal Earth airplane above different Solar System bodies?
"Unfortunately, X-Plane is not capable of simulating the hellish environment near the surface of Venus. But physics calculations give us an idea of what flight there would be like. The upshot is: Your plane would fly pretty well, except it would be on fire the whole time, and then it would stop flying, and then stop being a plane." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
