    Because breaks usually attached to the wheel. When the airplane is flying the wheel is not attach to the ground, so no matter how you push the break paddle, it wouldn't stop. And I'm sure no one would dare to get on the airplane if it suddenly stops in the air.

    becos the cost of stopping the plane immediately can not be justified by the its benefit.

    there are many other costs involve like

    a) maintaining the plane in the air when it stops

    b) protecting the people in the plane when it stops immediately

    c) strengthening the plane structure to withstand the great force

    d) building in the cost of power consumption and weight of the 'stopper'

    etc etc etc ....

    btw the way, planes are built for speed not maneuverability. If you want the latter (i.e. to brake) go for choppers.

    wow great thinking why won't you e-mail that question to Boeing or Lockheed think they might do it in their 2008 models, dumb ***

    air planes got brakes but only work while its on the ground, only a couple of fighter jets can stay in one place while on air, but they can to sudden stops

    do you know airplanes dont have reverse gear?

    so the airplane doesnt have to care who is behind its back...

    no need.

    everytime eagle or garuda or swan or chicken came across, the plane just shout arrogantly 'wey! wey! tepi2..gua nak lalu..tak nmpk gua sgt besar?? langgar kang? huh! '

    hmm..cmtu la..so,save cost on gear wot so ever..and all the animal or alien who came accross definitely will lari ketakutan..so,no crash will hepen. everyone live hepily ever after..

    sekian.
