Shall We Let 'er Rip?

Wed Apr 21, 2004 1:39 pm

Has anybody flown to SXM on several different kinds of heavies? The runway looks a tad short to me. If a 747-400 lands, will it come within just a few dozen feet of the end of the runway after landing? When departing, does the pilot hold the brakes, open the throttle to maximum, and let it go? Are there any planes larger than corporate jets where take-offs are done in a normal fashion?
