Last week on a KL
744 from CGK
About 60 pax, empty cargo bay ( combi 744), and not a lot of fuel for the 1.15h hop to
, all that combined with a full throttle take-off. Rotate at 120 knots.
This was very impressive. I was glad I decided to join the guys in the flightdeck
for that event.
The acceleration force was so mighty, given the fact this is such a massive aircraft.
What a huge difference compared to a fully loaded 744, when there doesn't seem
to be an end to the take-off roll.
