Is this 763ER taking off empty? I have never seen a 767 hop off the ground like that. It's almost looks over powered. Not to mention, look how fast he accelerates down the runway. Rather impressive if you ask me!

That's like a 20sec take off roll. Very impressive!

Wherever that plane was going wasn't very far away. Maybe it was a ferry even.

Any idea where he was heading? As a 767 driver I didn't see anything too unusual about the departure. They were probably fairly light - not fueled for a trans-Atlantic flight. But certainly it wasn't empty. I'd say possibly going to somewhere else in Europe. From the start of powerup to rotation was just over 20 seconds, and that's about average for a lighter weight takeoff. And the rotation & initial climbout seemed fairly normal.

Also, all airlines require a certain number of takeoffs to be flown with max thrust, and this may have been one of them. Sometimes pilots will do it just for fun too when they know they're light, just to add to the excitement.  wink

It was probably on a positioning/tag on flight between MAN and LGW, or another UK destination. IIRC there are even some MAN-BHX flights, which is well under 100 miles.

Simon Lowe is a very talented video producer - he has some great catches at MAN and other places.  yes

I had an even quicker take-off roll last week on an AA B763 from BRU to LHR. It was nearly empty.

I've seen faster. Looks fairly standard to me. But judging by the sound and the tree shown in the last seconds there was a decent headwind.

No wonder they cancelled the flight in the end. With BA's hub at LHR, it made little sense really.

With 19 passengers on board, nearly no weight in the lower holds and a minimum amount of fuel, a 767 climbs becomes a rocket  Wink

I remeber flying LHR-AMS on KLM's 763 and that was impressive - took off on 27L and rotated next to T4, but that was with a hold full of cargo and almost a full flight.

Your airline allows pilots the discretion of doing a max-thrust TO just for "shits and giggles"? I'd have thought that would be one of the first things they'd crack down on to reduce maintenance costs.

A WN 737 driver told me that CFM monitors all their engines in real time and assesses WN a maintenance penalty for going over 95%N1 (which they sometimes have to do out of LAS/PHX on hot days).

Was waiting for a comment like that ... the only thing is missing now is the standard "thats incredibly reckless of the flight crew and should be fired immediately" comments  Wink

As far as the video, while impressive, I didn't find it overly impressive.

My most memorable takeoff ever was on a lightly loaded 763ER from GVA to LHR not long after BA introduced the type into service.

It's hard to compare inside to outside but I remember it being more impressive than that video.

The 767 is very powerful.

AA takes off from the 6,995 foot runway at OGG and flies the 7 hrs plus to DFW.

Here's another short take off roll and this is a revenue flight,

The old ABX 762F routinely takes off far quicker than this on the short YVR - BFI flight every evening with only belly cargo, nothing in the main hold and I guess very little fuel. Likewise the UPS 763F on the same flight (about the same as the legendary 757 which normally operates this flight).

After working on a 757, a flight crew came to take it up for a test flight. Light fuel load, no baggage/cargo, two pilots and two technicians. I felt like I was in an F-18! I swear we were going straight up! Awesome...

In terms of power to weight, the 763ER is a very powerful jet. It has potentially up to roughly 62,000 lb/ thrust engines to its 412,000 MTOW. I suppose it helps balance out 767's relatively small wing area.

Even very heavily loaded, it seems to get up to speed and up in the air faster than other widebodies. I had a transpacific 763ER a few months back that climbed like a rocket, even with a full load of fuel and a full cabin of pax.
