General Dynamics F-111A Aardvark. The F-111A could change the angle or “sweep” of its wings in flight. This image shows three different wing positions. With the wings swept forward, the F-111A had more lift to carry heavier loads, and it could land or take off at a slower speed. With the wings swept back, the F-111A could fly at very high speeds.

“ The company hands out 61 million bags of peanuts every year, and about the same number of pretzels. A one-cent increase in peanut prices increases Delta’s costs by $610,000 a year. ”

 in the New York TimesAirlines Studying the Science of Better In-Flight Meals.

Hey, 61,000,000×$0.01 = $610,000! Good to know the New York Times is on it. (Seriously, though, the scale is kind of baffling, and the rest of the article, pointing out how much the environment of flying makes it to do good catering, is worth a read.)
