    the force of lift. Lift is when the wing is getting pushed upwards harder than it is getting pushed downwards. If this is happening, then it means gravity is not as strong on the plane as thrust and lift are. Lift is the starting point and the middle of the flight. If the plane is moving upwards, lift is taking place. When a paper airplane is going down, lift is not taking place.When the air is going under the wings of the plane this is also lift. Without the wings there is no lift which means the flight
