Awesome 742 Take-off Video

Fri Mar 04, 2005 9:19 am

I have to agree with the voices on the tape. I did not think he was going to hit V1 in time. Great video. Head on with the Queen of the skies!!

A guy says at 23 seconds 'Jesus Christ!', then another pipes up '... not gonna make it..'.

To be honest I thought the vid was gonna be more dramatic than that; I see that it does only just make it off by the time the main bogies lift off the ground but the distance and camera angle doesn't help. Probably would have been more dramatic taken from the side or RIGHT on the end of the runway. Big grin

Still good though.

Every time there is a 5 star video at fl350 do we have to be remineded at this forum? Last week it was the delta 737. And the perception is what makes this video great there was more than enough runway for a 747. The guy in the background says "oh man he's not going to make it"

Yes, and we also have to be reminded to use spell check on here as well!!

Reminded (correct spelling) not as you spelled it above.

As for the video, not everyone on here surf's fl350.com as much as they do the message boards here. I thought it was a great video and decided to share it with other aviation enthusiasts on here who had not seen it yet. You don't like these threads, don't post on it then!!!

I don't think it was as close as people are saying; the perspective of the camera skews our view. He appears to start rotation at the 1500 ft marker, and is airborne by the 1000 ft marker, from the looks of it.

What I had fun seeing was the plane dipping and rising as it went over the uneven surface of the runway! And of course, the jet blast...love that!

Sit at the end of runway 32 in Anchorage. Just about every 747 going to Asian is like that video. Iv'e seen 747's leaving SFO as well like that. And thats with 10,000+ feet of runway. Though a great viseo, I expected more.

I totally agree with you. I have watched 747's takeoff and land all day long in the past. I have never been that close to the end of a runway before facing a 747 coming straight at me, (what a rush that must have been) with the exception of SXM and maybe I was there on a crappy week, none of the landings were as low as the pictures I have seen on here. Non the less, it was a great time indeed.

It's possible, the only doubts I have to that are the people on the ground saying "he is not going to make it". I have never been to that airport before, I don't know the layout. The spotters in the video obviously do, and seemed to show concern that rotation was not sooner.

The perception of distance from that angle and through a zoom lens is deceiving. It IS an awesome clip, but I'd estimate the aircraft lifted off with about 1,000ft to spare.

Try taking off a fully loaded 747 200 from LAX. The only airline I seen fly fully loaded 747 200 from LAX was Air New Zealand, on there LAX-AKC route. Believe me they were pretty close to the end of LAX longest runway, during take off.

There's a picture here on a.net that shows a 747 taking off just before it gets to the end of the runway. The nose wheel is in the air and the main wheels are still on the ground, very close to the piano keys.

Runway dimensions at BOH:

26/08 2271 metres x 46 metres

or if you prefer

26/08 7449 feet x 151 feet


Does anyone know if this was a 26 or 08 departure? I have been to BOH before but I can't work it out. It looks like the video was shot at the end of runway 08 looking west. There is a road there where you would get a good shot of a 08 take-off from. But those hills in the background confuse me. Anyone know for sure?

Pretty neat, but I'd say there were a good 200-300 metres of the runway left when the main gear took to the air. It doesn't beat the Domodedovo Il-96 mowing the lawn at Phuket.  Smile

That video was more dramatic than it really was. As an avid airplane watcher, I have watched planes take off for the last 20 years from Gravely Point next to Reagan National Airport. Anyone old enough ever watch those Eastern and Delta 727's take off north bound from there in the 80's? Those planes would take every inch of runway before lifting off low over Roaches Run and they would turn hard right away from the monument and area around the Capitol and White House. With a low bypass turbofan, as those planes were, that was actually the correct way to take off, let speed build. Also, the wind direction at Reagan National dictated how the pilots handled the jets. Those were the days, loved those loud planes departing low overhead. No fun anymore with these 738's and 757's, they take off too quick, great if you are on one. Even the MD80 and MD88's, were runway runners in the early 80's and 90's at Reagan National.

It is a very good video, but I think people need to realize that the pilots would have performed the appropriate calculations in terms of weight, atmospheric conditions and runway length, so they knew very well that the runway was long enough for them to take off, even if not by much.

There is no doubt everything was figured into the plane being able to take-off in time before running out of runway. It is just for that brief second, you start to think why hasnt that plane lifted off yet? Maybe the pilots were giving the spotter a rush by waiting so long before taking off. Who knows?
