What is meant by 'over-rotation', as in this text from Justplanes:

"A Boeing 747 (N3203Y) on a military flight from Anchorage AK to Travis AFB AK over-rotated on takeoff from Anchorage on 28Dec causing substantial damage to the tail. The aircraft continued to Travis AFB where the damage was discovered."

I would've thought that the example is quite self-explanetory!

It also guarantees a visit with the Chief Pilot, a re check in the sim and a look by Freindly Aviation Administration.

When rotating the 777-300 properly, the tail comes to within 3 ft of the runway apparently. Most 777-300 pilots rotate too slowly, which ensures them more tail clearance, but that's not what the company want, as they end up eating up more runway doing this.

"Over-rotation" also describes an event caused by loading an aircraft too tail-heavy. The pilot rotates normally, but the aircraft quickly pitches to a higher attitude than the pilot intended.
