I know this topic has been done in the past, but both threads are now archived and thus inaccessible, so here goes another one!
What are your experiences of longest take-off and landing rolls (and come to mention it shortest take-off/landing rolls).
I personally don't usually time these rolls, but I once did on a fully booked B744 from SIN
out of interest. Coincidently, the take off felt like my longest ever (at about 50 seconds) and I began to doubt whether we would ever get airborne.
Interestingly, all my landing rolls have been relatively short for all types (commuter/short/long haul, narrow/wide-body), and even when I've had my doubts about the landings that seemed to float forever down half the runway, the planes still stopped well short with little effort? Is there any reason for this do you think?
What are your experiences? Thanks anyway for being patient with another posting like this again!
