Does the airplane moves backward?

The two of the forces that airplane experiences are lift and drag. And the airplane experiences more lift as compared to the drag, due to its shape.

If the drag has been more than the lift, the aircraft would have gone backward and not forward and it would not be able to take off and move forward.

So this shows that an airplane will not move backward unless the drag (which the body of an aircraft resists) is more than the lift (provided by the wings of the airplane).

Freaky. Air ship can move in reverse on the ground, as well as fly in reverse! In the event that the relative breeze is blowing quicker than your ground speed, you will fly in reverse.
