I haven't seen a civilian airliner doing them exactly like in Fred; I'm pretty sure the controllers at JFK would be a little ticked by someone spending an extra 25 sec on the runway with engines at TRT. Although on really short runways like LGA, I've seen various implementations of the 'standing' technique in civilian airplanes (although I don't think the power is all the way up at brake release). When I was flying Part 121, we only had a "reduced" or "Max" thrust takeoff options, with flaps at either 10 or 20. They were both performed in the same way--you'd hold the brakes while running the EPRs up to about 1.1 and then release the brakes as you push the thrust levers up.
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

Anyone using Burbank Runway 33 on a cloudy day, when you can't see the mountans. They know the mountans are there and want as much speed and allttude as soon as they can get it. I've seem them make left hand turns as soon as the wheels clear the runway.
