Actually, it was a noise abatement climb - for the few passengers onboard, all VIPs. There was a rap concert going on down below.

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Sun May 24, 2009:
I think the pilot has forgotten STALL problem !!

A visitor from United States posted Sun May 11, 2008:
The flight attendants will have a lot of clean up to do after this take off. And the pilots must be giggling about passenger reactions!

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Sun April 6, 2008:
Anyone guess the climb rate? I bet it 3000ft/min!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed January 16, 2008:
Incredible shot- must be an exhilarating experience

A visitor from Germany posted Mon December 17, 2007:
Why oh why couldn't I be on that flight? This must feel so freaking great! Whoooohooo she is rocketing off - great catch even with the pale colours.

A visitor from Puerto Rico posted Fri November 30, 2007:
Feel the power!!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 24, 2007:
I bet it's an ex-blue angel pilot in command!

A visitor from Canada posted Sat July 21, 2007:
I can almost hear the stall warning alarm from here! Great shot though. It pays to be in the right place at the right time with your camera.

A visitor from Singapore posted Mon February 26, 2007:
Were the pilots trying to avoid scaring the beach goers? Great shot!

A visitor from Dominican Republic posted Tue February 13, 2007:

WOW! This baby is climbing like a home sick angel.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat June 10, 2006:
Is that a space shuttle taking off? Oh, no, it's a B757! Amazing climb...

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Tue January 17, 2006:
