In the end, it’s concluded that the airspeed velocity of a (European) unladen swallow is about 24 miles per hour or 11 meters per second. But, the real question is not about swallows at all. King Arthur in the movie had two coconut shells that he banged together to simulate the sound of a horse galloping.
In order to maintain air- speed velocity , a swallow needs to beat its wings forty-three times every second, right? King Arthur: Please!
King Arthur was the fourth- the first two questions were the same as for Lancelot, Robin and Galahad, but the third was: “What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?” Arthur asked which kind of swallow: African or European, and when the bridgekeeper answered “I don’t know that”, he was thrown into the gorge
≈ 23 cm? By averaging all 6 values, we can estimate that an average European Swallow flies at cruising speed with a frequency of roughly 15 beats per second, and an amplitude of roughly 22 cm.

ERIC IDLE was the nicest of the six members of Monty Python. He was born in the North of England… well when I say the nicest he wasn’t absolutely the nicest. Michael Palin is generally recognized as being the nicest. Actually Terry Jones is pretty nice too and certainly he’s very nice at parties.
Lancelot: My name is Sir Lancelot of Camelot. Bridgekeeper : Whatis your quest ? Lancelot: To seek the Holy Grail.
King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king .
This is given as evidence that the bird could not, in fact, carry a 1-pound coconut . To further diminish the case for coconut – carrying swallows , the average coconut is approximately 1-and-a-half pounds, approximately 34 times heavier than a European swallow .
Arthur: It could grip it by the husk! Guard: It’s not a question of where ‘e grips it! It’s a simple question of weight ratios! A five – ounce bird could *not* carry a one – pound coconut !
What is your name ? ARTHUR: It is ‘Arthur’, King of the Britons. BRIDGEKEEPER: What is your quest? ARTHUR: To seek the Holy Grail.
Shh! Knight of Ni : We are now the Knights who say “Ekky-ekky-ekky-ekky-z’Bang, zoom-Boing, z’nourrrwringnmmm”. Other Knight of Ni : Ni ! Knight of Ni : Therefore, we must give you a test.
In several scenes the monks chant in Latin: “Pie Jesu domine, dona eis requiem”. The translation of this is: “Merciful Lord Jesus, grant them rest.” It’s part of the standard Latin funeral rite.
According to research from the Avian Demography Unit of the University of Capetown, the European swallow has an average length of 12.2 cm and an average mass of about 20 grams.
Exact airspeed velocity of an unladen Flying Spaghetti Monster is unknown and it’s widely believed that it is more likely to be faster than cheetah. All followers of FSM hold that pirates are sacred and were first Pastafarians. Flying Spaghetti Monster is the deity and grew to become a social movement.
TIL coconuts do in fact migrate , being buoyant enough to float on the current of the tropical pacific ocean until it is washed up on land to take root and grow.
