Crazy China Airlines Take-Off Video

Sun Dec 16, 2007 10:53 pm

Just found this on YouTube and haven't seen it on here. The aircraft actually goes off the runway, but somehow manages to climb. You can see it go off when the cloud of dust comes from the main carriage.

And I just thought I'd post this one in HKG:

"Bangkok Tower, United 890 Heavy. Bangkok Tower, United 890 Heavy.....Okay, fine, we'll just turn 190 and Visual Our Way
