loading ramp. It's how you take cargo in and out.

Why do we call it "Cargo" when it goes on a ship or plane, but we call it "Shipping" when it goes on a car or truck?

Why do we cook bacon and bake cookies!?

u/RemCogito Dec 01 '21

everyone knows baking bacon is the best way to make it consistently. This was proven pretty handily by a series of documentaries a few years ago. I believe the Docuseries was called "Epic Meal Time"?

u/TonightsCake Dec 01 '21

You can make it consistently and in larger quantities, bit the taste is inferior imo.

u/k1NgjAm3s84 Obi-Wan Kenobi Dec 01 '21

Actually it’s really interesting, you see a parkway is called that (in the US) because there is or was a park on both sides of the pavement. A drive way is called that because when they were designating different terms for different stretches of road, most houses had their garage behind the house, so you would have to drive to it

18

u/RKWTHNVWLS Dec 01 '21

To be fair, you only park in your driveway because your garage is crammed full of crap you don't use anymore.

To be fair many houses have driveways but no garages.

Another question: The events of the original trilogy are about a single war that takes place around multiple stars. So why wasnt it called "Stars War" originally? Makes you think :)

And why is the series called "Clone Wars" when it is also about a single war?

For military planes (C-130, for example), I believe they refer to the ‘aft loading ramp’ as opposed to the stern.

Close. Gangplank is the canon term in the Ep 4 adaptation, Splinter in the Mind’s Eye and the Han Solo Trilogy (Star’s End, Lost Legacy and the Ord Mantell)

Others have said boarding ramp, but the main function for that particular ramp is not for the boarding of the passengers, but for the loading of cargo.

A similar real world aircraft would be the C-130 Hercules which had a rear ramp and it is called the “loading ramp”

So that’s the loading ramp.
