Weird A319 Take Off Video

Sat Mar 25, 2006 12:24 am

Sorry if this has been posted before, but I just found this video of an A319(?) taking off in a very strange way. Does anybody know anything about this?

I guess it's a ferry flight. Pilots "having fun" with a rocket T/O (757 style)  Wink They keep the nose down to accelerate and then pull it all the way up (Airbus computer managing the max angle achievable)

Looks like a short takeoff procedure. Early rotation, dropping the nose, building speed, then initiating a climb out. The goal is to get the wheels of the runway as quickly as they can. However, judging by the airport I would say its a drill of some sort. This has been discussed here before, simply do a check for it, I didn't read that other post, only saw it, so there might be more useful information there.

Ive seen this before, and am pretty certain it was taken at an airshow (I highly doubt that kind of manouever is permissable in normal usage at any airport on any airline). Cant shed any light on where and when tho.

Is it me, or does it look like it's a flapless take-off?
And I think as discussed previously here on a.net this is definitely at some air show.

Yeah I remember this thread coming up previously.. I'm pretty sure it's an airshow.

Look at all the planes down on the tarmac.. I'm 99.8% sure that's an airshow. Pilot uses the ground effect to gather speed and *POW* straight up.  Smile

I sitll get the heeby-jeebies from seeing Airbus aircraft performing maneuvers at airshows after that nasty Air France bird that entered the forest 15 years ago.

Hi all.

That was taken at EDLW/DTM, Dortmund (Germany). I think its allready pretty much 6 or 8 years ago. Maybe less or maybe more, I dont know.
But nevertheless, this was I think the first Airbus for Eurowings (EWG/EW).
They presented this plane at their homeairport to the public. Plane was nearly empty and without pax of course.
Now this plane is flying for Germanwings.

Regards

Jan

Dont worry, that pilot isnt still flying I dont think so he cant make the same mistakes again.

In that case, don't count on me flying AF anytime in the next 30 or 40 years..

That all depends on who you talk too as to what went wrong.

Im quite inclined to put my faith in the air accident investigators, the judge, the judiciary, the police, several airline pilots on this forum and multiple other people on this subject rather than a group of what essentially boils down to conspiracy nuts  Smile
