I just got back from PDX and right before I left I watched this SWA 737-700 depart and was amazing at how fast it accelerated and climbed. This is absolutely not a self-plug but I posted the video right when I got home to share with you folks. Is this normal? Or was this 737 just empty most likely?

20 seconds from brake release to liftoff is pretty good. You can hear the wind on the microphone of the camera. I wonder what the headwind was.

Yeah, it was really windy, that may have been it right there. But the acceleration was pretty amazing.

I've got one for you:

This is an Icelandair 757-200 at Reykjavik (BIRK), from brake release to nose up was about 12 seconds. He was off the deck in less than 2000 ft. THAT is impressive.

20 seconds on cool headwinds, at sea level... Sounds good, albeit about right to me... I usually time departures of AM B73Ns at hot & high conditions @ MEX (Elev: 7,315 Ft) at 29-31 seconds. Cool nights / early morning departures may go down to 27 seconds rolls.

I believe this one was a demonstration of its capabilities, i would seriously doubt it has passengers on, prehaps it could be a ferry flight?

I have been seeing a lot of southwest planes taking off faster lately, we just started our new loading system, maybe that is helping, everything is a lot more tail heavy than we used to load.

I would doubt it as this is at an airshow.

That had to be one lightly loaded plane and one heck of a headwind.

I watched this bad boy take-off using no more than 4000' on an empty ferry flight from GRR to ORD back on December 12:

Icelandair flies international out of Keflavik (KFF?) with a 10,000 foot plus runway, as it was a joint US-Icelandic air base. I flew them twice while stationed there back in the early 1990s. The US military is gone, but the air terminal is there and is very nice. I agree this was an air show or a demo flight of that 757 as the Reyjavik airport is for domestic flights only, mostly turboprops and suspect it has a much shorter runway. IMHO on domestic AA flights, the 757 is my favorite aircraft. I've noticed it uses little runway and gets airborne fast compared to the MD 80 series and even the Embraer 140s.

If I can ever remember to bring the video camera early in the morning, there is a UPS 757 that leaves PBI near the crack of dawn most days. This bird if off the ground faster than you can say "What can brown do for you."

Talked to the pilot about it one day (he was non-reving out on us) and he told me with an empty plane, you can almost stand the 757 on its tail at takeoff. He said it was the most overpowered aircraft in operation.

But no more! This week we successfully launched our Load Planning System (LPS), which is a preplanning tool that automates aircraft loading. It was developed to improve our current baggage loading process and to make best use of bin space, with an ultimate goal of improving operational and fuel efficiency.
