How long would it take an African swallow to fly to the moon if it were fully laden?
The definition of laden is carrying a weight. It would be impossible to determine the air speed of an African swallow if it were fully laden without knowing the weight of what it was carrying. Being fully laden would probably cause the bird to be unable to fly at all. An unladen African swallow averages 24mph, and the moon is 238,857 miles from Earth. It would take 9,952 hours or 414 days for the swallow to reach the moon.
