A universal explanation
of the physics of flight, regarding it as a case of reactive motion,caused by the interaction of flying objects and airflow, is presented. The results obtained are exact and valid for all kinds of flying objects in real 3-dimensional fluid. Theyconstitute, on one hand, a good complement to the Kutta-Joukowski theorem and, on theother hand, a generalization of this theorem is derived for low-viscosity real fluid.
