If by fully loaded you mean at MTOW, then it would be ~10000-10500' depending on type of engine. This is of cousre assuming 0 ASL airport elevation, no wind or runway slope taken into account etc.

Here, have a look for yourself:

I've seen Air Force One use about 4,000 feet.

Here's a pretty cool video that illustrates 744 short-field performance (9 MB):

Of course, this one's not even close to fully loaded so it doesn't directly address your question.

Any lightly loaded airplane will have pretty impressive take-off performance. I saw an empty 757 going from DAB to SFB use about 1500 to 2000'...pretty cool!

I belive that the 747SP had the shortest takeoff roll. Maybe someone has seen one in executive configuration.

Strange, I never once heard Kylie Minogue whilst taking off in the -400. Oh well.

For a Boeing 747-438 departing in ISA conditions, nil wind at sea level with Flap 20 and Full Rating the takeoff field length required is 3400 metres from brakes release to 35 feet.

I was actually at Avalon Airshow and witnessed that takeoff whilst soaking the hospitatility of Shell corporate tent.

Let me tell you it was an awesome sight first hand. Although as is normal with airshows displays such as that are sometimes dwarfed when you have F/A 18's F 111's and the like doing what they do.

All the same it was pretty impressive as it rotated pretty well right in front of us.

You get a light airplane and a good headwind and you can see some amazingly short rolls.

OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

I know a QF Captain, he told me once he did a max performance T/O off Rwy 34L at YSSY in an empty 767; he said that by the northern end of the runway he was at 6000', I'd have liked to see that

The 767 is a different ball game! Last week with 250 souls on board on a hot and still day the Captain pressed EPR and good old VH-ZXG dumped the derate and applied full thrust. After babbling to get "Eighty knots Vee One Rotate" out we were airborne by taxiway Golf on Runway 16R and climbing like the proverbial homesick angel.

That being said I've got shots of VH-OJH and VH-OEI doing the same thing!

I have noticed the difference in acceleration between a 76 and a 74 Anthony, actually I might have seen that t/o in 'ZXG, not too sure about the 'old' part though.

How about long takeoffs? I came back to Sydney from Johannesburg (the night of the Bali Bombings as it happened). I knew it was going to be interesting when I overheard a conversation about how much fuel the APU had burnt as I waited at the end of the jetway. We lined up and started trundling forward without any real sense of acceleration at all, we eventually got airborne after a 62 second roll.
