Found this while trawling youtube.

Mainly due to the winds I assume. What airport is this?

As the video clearly states, Bermuda (BDA). Very light load to JFK + what appear to be favorable winds probably were factors. Did you look at the comments for that video? Needless to say, some very interesting arguments going on there.  Smile

- Empty or lightly loaded aircraft
- Short flight
- Strong head wind
- Powerful engines / light weight


I experienced many very short take off like this when Air Inter was using some A330-300 on its French domestic network with the same conditions written above.

Last Saturday we had a United Airlines 747-400 come into Manchester, New Hampshire from Des Moines, IA. This video shows the plane departing for Chicago, empty and facing a 30-knot headwind.

Fantastic video!! A 747-400 with a 16-17 second TO run is truly amazing Big grin

The 767 wants to leap off the runway on shortish flights with light loads. It seems more impressive than smaller aircraft with light loads

I've been on a flight with an even shorter takeoff roll - GLA-MAN on Zoom (763). I spoke to the Capt after landing and he said we used about 3,500ft of runway. And he was using a de-rated takeoff. That was with about 50 pax and less than 2 hours fuel load.

I have never forgotten the sight of a QF 762 departing AKL during the early stages of Cyclone Bola ( early 1988 IIRC ) the winds at the stage were almost directly head on for a/c departing on 05 and it looked almost as if the plane was being snatched off the ground by some invisible giant - I am sure that it was very 'interesting' for the pax aboard

The 747-400 was doing a troop charter into Manchester, NH. The plane was N175UA. The only other 747 we've had here was AF1, but with 9,250 feet on one runway and about 8,000 on the other, it's not a problem. As you could see from the video, this 744 used barely 3,000 of runway...probably even less if you're able to see those runway markers in the video.

My most rocket-like takeoff was from the center runway at CVG, southbound, on a lightly-loaded 752 to ATL. That was a ride!

17/18 sec take off run is far from a "normal" take off for Concorde ... The standard take off speed for Concorde was around 220knots, that were reached after 30 seconds minimum...

There was a video of a Zoom 763 taking off from YYZ on an empty ferry to YOW (shot from FedEx Hill) right before they began operations, but it seems to of been pulled off youtube. I was there at the time, similar roll to the AA one, but then it just CLIMBED, i swear by the end of the runway (23) he was at LEAST 3000'AGL, you could hear him (or maybe the better way to put it is you could no longer hear him after) cut power at the top of the climb and just push over, it was the most amazing takeoff i ever saw a commercial aircraft do, i swear i've only seen military and maybe a couple bizjets fly that way!

And I've been on some 767s that have flown short hops, always an amazing ride on a short hop, YOW-YYZ was always a blast! Pity they aren't as common on short hauls as they once were. Best ever was a YVR-YYC (on to YYZ), maybe 30 people on board, jumped off the runway, not quite as fast as the AA one but still fun  Smile

A friend of mine is a 767 F/O with AA. One time, he had to ferry a 767 (can't remember if -200 or -300) from ORD to DFW. The plane was empty, well below MTOW. Not only was he surprised at the short takeoff roll, but the climb rate was unbelievable.

How about a light load departure in an Avro rj100 out of London city. Sitting at the end of the runway with all engines at take of throttle and then letting the brakes off it quite an experience!

I remember, back when Delta had their 767s maintained by Air Canada @ YVR, I watched one of their 762s takeoff on what must have been a test flight of some sort. She started to roll, I turned away to grab my other camera from the back of my car and when I looked back, she was rotating - after what seemed like no more than 10-15 seconds. Quite the climb afterwards, too. The pilot told the tower he'd tell him his altitude at the end of the runway... 2600' ASL. Bloody impressive!

Very impressive!! As is the UA 744 in MHT, now that is SHORT.

Nothing better than 12 pax on a DC9-50 EWR-DTW. Talk about fast takeoffs and an insane climb.

The 762 is known along with the 752 as one of the most exceptional climbing aircraft available. It takes off short. It has light weight, big engines and a big wing.
