Quoting Wardialer (Thread starter): During the take-off roll of a B747-400, how long does does it take from zero to 60mph
Your persistence is remarkable, but contributors to this forum evidently have been unable to satisfy your curiosities about takeoff acceleration. Maybe there's a better place to research these questions.
Quoting Wardialer (Thread starter): I would like to know what speed and the rate of acceleration in standard condiitons would be on a 747-400
Quoting Wardialer (Thread starter): On a standard day, how many seconds would a B747-400 acheive from 0 to 60 mph during a take-off roll??
Quoting Wardialer (Thread starter): Whenever I go out to the airport like LAX or BUR I still wonder how they accelerate so quickly to rotation speed, especially B747s, I still don't believe that a really heavy mass like that can go from 0 to 200mph in about 50sec.
Quoting Wardialer (Thread starter): What is the rate of acceleration during take-off roll for a fully loaded B747-400 in MPH (Ground Speed) on a standard day with no wind?
Quoting Wardialer (Thread starter): What are the rotation speeds of the TU-134 and the TU-154 on a standard day with fuel and passengers?
Quoting Wardialer (Thread starter): Is a fully loaded B747-400 or MD-11's initial take-off power is equally the same as a vehicle with a V-8 engine in it?
Quoting Wardialer (Thread starter): Whenever I see like a B737 or B747 on a take-off roll, it does not seem like its going 150 to 190 mph.
And BTW, I do not believe at all that there going that fast at all, its more like 110 mph.
Quoting Wardialer (Thread starter): What is the typical Rate of acceleration for a B737 with normal power setting and the average take-off weight?
Please dont tell me that on a 6700-foot runway a B737 can acheive a 155 mph ground speed.?

Wardialer... reading your other (numerous) posts about the acceleration and take off speed of a 747 (including one thread where you continued to insist that a 747 can't possibly take off at a speed higher than 80 mph because it "looks slower than 100" and "the tires would burst") I just want to ask, why do you keep bringing this up? The question was satisfactorily answered for you several times in the past, but it seems you refuse to believe the answers you are given... what gives?

Quoting Bobster2 (Reply 7): In MS Flight Simulator 2002 at Meigs, the 747-400 takes about 8-9 seconds to reach 52 knots with full fuel, about 5 seconds with 1% fuel. I don't know how to add passengers or cargo.
By default your 747-400 is fully loaded with fuel, pax and cargo in MSFS2002. There is a fuel item under "aircraft". To fiddle with pax and cargo numbers either buy MSFS2004 or get an add-on.
