DC-10 Short Takeoff Run (video)

Thu Feb 15, 2007 9:36 am

I was browsing around flightlevel350 and came across this very impressive video.... I thought I would share it. Three very impressive take offs, the last of which is a DC-10, which demonstrates its awesome power. There must have been like 10 people on that plane....

Great video! Thanks for sharing...yes, that Biman DC10 must have been very light to have such a short takeoff roll and fast rotation...

Excellent Video!

Nice video, he must have been really light. I think the same can be said for this video I shot this a few weeks ago http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUpScNgvgj4 and while the headwinds had to be close to 30 knots, I was reminded of the movie "30 seconds over Tokyo" Fully loaded B-25's lifting of the USS Hornet on the Doolittle raid........

WOW, that was sure a short roll for a commercial flight. WOW.
As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

CF-188A, thanks for sharing that very enjoyable video. I am not familiar with Biman's routings out of MAN where the video was shot but the DC-10 had to be going a short distance away, within Europe as the key to that kind of takeoff roll and climb rate is more of a very light fuel load than the number of passengers and or amount of cargo.

Cheers

I find the sound of all three, can easily be deciphered. The quality of the sound was amazing. The 747 had more of the screech followed by the thunder jet effect, the 773 seemed to just have a whine type sound.... like a vacuum cleaner! ... I was not aware it spooled up until i saw it accelerate like hell, really goes to show the high class of technology and innovation in its powerplants. That DC-10 on the other hand.... talk about a screech, a whine , a whistle then a thunder ..... insane video....

Holy Cr*p! I so want to ride on a 10!!!

I also must say that the 773ER has one hell of a great engine sound!

Excellent video, the noise of those engines is just wonderful!

Out of interest, how much longer does Biman plan to keep their DC10's for and how much flying them costs? I know they have information about their domestic fares on their website, but nothing about their international ones, and I can never get through to their offices in London.

Thanks,

What I noticed most of all was the way the rudder on the Emirates aircraft flicks back and forth during the take-off roll. Not only in frequency of rudder movements, but also in maginitude of deflection. I can understand it happening early on in the take-off roll because the FP is trying to get lined up on the centerline of the runway. I can also see that one would use rudder input to counter cross-wind conditions as one approaches rotation. But this video shows a LOT of rudder inputs, and some pretty aggressive ones at that IMHO.

Have to admit that the rudder deflection on the 773 seems surprising, although not being a pilot myself, I'm not able to judge if it is out of the ordinary.

Did anyone notice the wing flex on the 773 take-off : beautiful!

All in all a very high quality video.

Great Video! Thanks for sharing it. About 2 years ago, I was a First Officer on the DC-10 flying cargo all over the world. I can tell you from personal experience, that flying a lightweight DC-10 is an experience you are not soon going to forget. I took off once at 330,000 lbs (lightweight for a DC-10-30), and it was like an elevator ride. You see pitch attitudes of up to 30 Degrees and climb rates over 6,000 fpm. Climbing through FL300, I was still seeing 4,000 fpm. Just think over 150,000 pounds of thrust for a little over 300,000 pounds. I think you get the idea. Thanks again for the video and fly safe!

I know the -10 has minimal nosewheel steering through the rudder pedals, in addition to the tiller. It's good for minor corrections on the runway and would, of course, move the rudder as well. Maybe Triple 7 has a similar setup?

757Driver....Amen. I flew KC-10s for 5 years and loved every minute of it. Even a Max GWT T/O (590K) could be brisk for the weight - climbs in excess of 2,000 fpm. But yes, lightweight takeoffs were always the most fun!  bigthumbsup

That it does, and so does almost every major airliner currently flying.

In my misbegotten youth, I had opportunity to fly 10 and 30 series DC-10s fairly often. In each instance, the takeoffs were marvels.

One I remember in particular was a leg on NW from BIL to MSP. There was almost no one else on the aircraft. That was a thrilling takeoff ... almost like being on one's personal rocket ship! Just wonderful for a kid like I was. Threw me back in my seat, and up at an angle that was simply amazing. Just ... wow!

His stuff is brilliant.....I am surprised that he puts his stuff up for free, when he could no doubt sell his work. I could sit for hours and watch his videos...the attention to detail, it's not just an airplane taking off, it's a work of art!
Love it!

Anyone notice the accent of the Emirates pilot?
Very distinct American accent.

If it was in your youth, the BIL-MSP leg on NW would have been a DC-10-40 (Pratt & Whitney JT9Ds), not a GE-powered -10 or -30. NW had no -10s and their -30s were acquired much later (all used from various sources unlike their original new -40s) when they expanded to Europe.

DC-10 remains one of my favorites. I flew on DC-10s of at least a dozen carriers over the years. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to fly on another NW DC-10 before they were finally retired last month. My last DC-10 flight was on a NW -30 AMS-MIA 4 or 5 years ago.

It might have been a -40, although I was young enough to think it was a -30. I'll take your word for the fact NW ran a -40 on the BIL-MSP leg. This was just a bit less than 30 years ago, sometime in the mid-late 70s. Keep in mind as I tried to say, the DC10s I flew on weren't only with NW, they were with NA (and PA afterward) as well.

My last was actually on a PA flight from MIA to ORD via JFK. An aircraft I'll very much miss.

yeah, i noticed that too. definitely American, i've spoken to enough Canadians in my line of work to notice a difference in an American vs a Canadian accent, it's hard to explain, but i'm sure that 77W pilot was American, cool stuff.

cool video too.

I miss the classics "sigh" DC-10, L1011, 747-200, 747-300.
