This happened a week ago:
Im in a special class in my school (for the ones with the best grades), and this aeroespacial/aeronautical/mechanical center (CEIIA) about 400m away from the school invited us to go there to visit the facilities, to see the prototype of the car they built for the movie “Downsizing”, and to talk with their enginners.
In the middle of the tour, they showed us how they built the elevator of the new military Embraer aircraft. They asked if anyone had questions and I asked if they used the material of the a350 to build the elevator, and they seemed surprised with my question (probably they werent expecting anyone who would be an avgeek). They answered the question, and after that, i had the chance to talk, with one of the engineers, more deeply about the plane. My head teacher noticed that, and then she realized i knew a lot about planes.
In a class, someone asked a question (dunno how) about the aircraft sales market. The head teacher answered saying that Cessna was on the lead (because a friend of hers has one C152 and he says that it is a very popular plane). Then she asked to me if the answer was correct and my answer was putting my hands in the head like in the meme WTF? The whole class burst out laughing and the teacher got really ashamed.
I know its not that funny, but I thought that would be cool to share this.
