Bring Me A Shubbery

Or just tell me the average velocity of a swallow. The Estimated Airspeed Velocity of an Unladen Swallow, that is. African or European, I hear you say? That's all included in this troublingly in-depth study. Go ahead and plunge into the physics that follow. I am too soft in the head to look past the introductory paragraph, but I just KNOW my nerdier friends will come trumpeting back with the report that the math is skewed or the kinematic ratios are off.

I'd love to know how they set up the wind tunnel experiments. If you get your airspeed wrong or if your little friend slows down, you'd end up with an unusable sparrow.
