The fact of the matter is that it happened in YMX
, with a B752 headed to Europe, which used the entire runway to takeoff (12000ft). Now call it what you will, and believe it or not, but it happened!
Although there are so many factors that can explain that event:
-Not enough headwind during takeoff
-Too much tailwind component during takeoff (happens sometimes in YMX, since pilots prefer to takeoff from certains runways to save taxi time, and because the airport is so big!)
-Pilot judgement error
-Altitude of the airport
-TOW of the aircraft
And ConcordeBoy, a B757 or B767 that takesoff from 6900ft of runway during a hot n humid day, you can bet is not fully laden, that's for sure! Either that, or there had to be a strong headwind during takeoff!
As for you, LOT767-300ER, constructive criticism please!..If you have a clue what it means!
