In class, we haven't talked about it as a specific recovery point. But as a gradual increase in thrust based on airspeed. Q: How does the thrust decrease? Airspeed thrust decreases as the altitude increases. (High altitude = low pressure/less air) less air = less thrust Q: How does ram pressure increase? Ram pressure increases when you fly into the air ...

The thrust ($T$) of an engine is $T = Q(V_{out}-V_{in})$ where $Q$ is the mass flow through the engine, $V_{out}$ is the exit velocity of the exhaust gas and $V_{in}$ is the speed at which the air flow enters the engine inlet. The mass flow $Q$ is a product of volume of the air sucked by the engine and air density. When engine is producing considerable ...

It's the intake for the air conditioning system. Source (last post on the page by "antonkr": The round hole on the leading edge of the starboard sponson is the intake for the very well-designed and super-efficient Air Conditioning System. This system was run via the APU whilst the aircraft was on the ground. It worked so well that many passengers, ...
