We all know that the 757 has a great to due to having loads of power etc but when at NCL today I observed a KLM uk Fokker 100 and also a Tyrolean CRJ and thought that those a/c were very powerful in to performance. Anyone agree with me about these 2 a/c?. I also saw a few 757s take-off and they were also very impresive.
When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Yeah when the presidental 757 visited my airport a month ago it only used about 5000' of the 6000' runway for the take off, after rotation it look like the nose was 15 deg up for the climout. Really cool, esspecially since the larges jets I ever see are lears 45's.

I just watched an F-5 at moffet airfield (yes I know its military) take off today. He rotated very quickly then flew level at about 20ft for the next 8000ft of the runway. Then he pulled bach on the stick hard and hit fulll afterburners and climbed like crazy. That was cool...
