RA-86140 (cn 51483211102) No more runway left = Must rotate! Look at where the 1000 ft marker sign and where the plane is! One heart-stopping takeoff! The front gear of the plane actually got up before the '1' marker but the body remains heavy. I think the pilots know exactly where to rotate. The Ilyushin also kicked up a large sandstorm on the beach and it was barely above it after finally airborne. IL86 is such a beast! [Nikon D2x, High speed crop mode]

I remember watching a youtube video someone took while the IL86 he was in was taking off. The takeoff roll took 50-odd seconds, compared to around 30 for the A330 or 777!

Amazing takeoff.
My father is a retired IL-86 captain. Looking at this pic, he said he could indeed recall many takeoffs from "last stabs" there. Pilots relied on examplelary reliabilty of IL-86.

In Russia we have a famous phrase.

Now we miss him soooo much:(

Amazing shot! Finally I found what to write in comment.

Great Shot! The Il-86 tends to eat up the runway because of its weak engines.

The ancient (early 80's) joke about IL-86: It could a take off due to the Earth's curvature (because the Earth is a ball).
So, the Thai's land has no curvature?

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 3, 2010:
I wonder if anyone has counted the number of comments this photo has? Maybe a record?

BTW, that's a pretty "hairy" takeoff!

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 3, 2010:
Great shot, but very dangerous. I don't think this pilot (or dispatcher) knows how to run TOLD (either that or something was really messed up). Even more dangerous in that ICAO runways are TERPSed for a departure end of the runway crossing height of 35 feet.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon November 8, 2010:
I can imaging sound of heavy rocket when Ilyushin was taking off.

A visitor from - posted Wed January 27, 2010:
Are Russians familiar with the so-called "balanced field takeoff" at all? If you cannot comply, reduce the weight and/or wait for cooler temperature, stronger headwind, etc. I understand, time is money, but how can there be excuses for taking risks when there are 200-300 people seating behind you! I wonder how leaving the ground effect felt like.

They paied for the aircraft, they did the airport and they need to make it valuable!

A visitor from Netherlands Antilles posted Mon September 29, 2008:
The photographer fergot to mention this was a traning flight, and that this was a touch and go performed by an trainee. as a training captain on this type i know this aircraft very well and this is the exact moment the flaps were retracted enough to initiate a Vx climb out. There were no pax involved and no weight problems and no lack of speed and no thrust reverses. look aviation you can speculate alot about, but untill you actually see some real data- 1 picture can tell a million stories. but 1 is true ! I'm a frequent visitor of Phuket - Trainings Captain - P.Y.

A visitor from - posted Tue September 16, 2008:
The photo is not as spectacular as the event. It is obvious that the ariplane was overweight, the crew calculated the numbers wrong or they experienced an engine(s) failure at the most critical point.

A visitor from Venezuela posted Thu September 11, 2008:
Incredible picture... and scary take-off. I wouldn't want to be the pilot that day.
Actually, who am I kidding? I'd love to be a pilot any day; but I wouldn't take-off like that.

A visitor from Italy posted Wed May 21, 2008:
Those holes on the engines are not reverses but intakes present on the typical Il-96 engines. The flaps seem very low for take off but the landing configuration is even more than that.

A visitor from - posted Tue May 20, 2008:
Very, very nice moment... I don`t think that this take off is dangerous for the passengers, simply almost all of the planes do it there.

My dad was flying in Tu-134 a few years back a was the same takeoff. Apparently dad said that there was something wrong with the plane and the pilot didnt want to fly, but the russians started yelling and abusing the pilot so he forced to takeoff and about half a second after is took off the runways ended and the fence was under them.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu March 13, 2008:
Great Photo, but it shows what happens when flight crews make mistakes that could end in disaster. On any take-off, allowance must be made for a rejected take-off or engine failiure. If an engine were to fail in this example, that airplane would have ended at the bottom of the sea... Poor performance by the flight crew in my opinion

A visitor from Croatia posted Thu February 21, 2008:
Ahh those crazy ruskies....
hehe

A visitor from Australia posted Thu February 21, 2008:
Unless they lost an engine just before v1 and had planned to continue the takeoff this is very poor planning which resulted in a great photo

A visitor from Bahamas posted Sun December 9, 2007:
It's obvious by the comments attached to this photo that the visitors to this site know nothing about being a pilot. It is an awsome photo, but is 2 seconds from being evidence in an investigation. The pilots of this airplane felt nothing about putting the passengers lives at risk by performing a take-off in an airplane whose performance on that day was marginal for the mission. These pilots should be grounded. This take-off goes against everything us pilots spend our careers trying to perfect

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 6, 2007:

A visitor from Germany posted Sun December 2, 2007:
In my opinion we see in this picture a dramatic mistake of the cockpit crew. As said before the pilots have to check the weight of the aircraft before takeoff. This takeoff was close to a fatal accident. Thank god the aircraft rotated in the last possible moment.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun March 19, 2006:
That would have been one quiet cockpit in the climbout, I would think!
Have a look at the water... is is calmer closer to land... so this as a downwind takeoff. Yikes!

A visitor from Indonesia posted Fri March 17, 2006:
PA :Ladies and gentlements, the life vest is under your seat, please prepare it for your safety...hehehe ( Great shot..!! )

Did the flight crew have to change their pants after that takeoff roll?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu March 2, 2006:

Great picture

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 7, 2006:
The photo really gives you the gravity of the situation. Makes me wonder what it was like for a passenger looking out of their window...

A visitor from Canada posted Tue February 7, 2006:
From Mike in Canada. Wow! You were definitely in the right place at the right time to capture this moment. Not for the faint of heart to try this on a hot day in an aircraft that is close to its MAXTOW and is underpowered as well. Thanks for the shot!

A visitor from France posted Tue February 7, 2006:
Sam is without doubt the world famous photographer of aircraft shot in unusual angle

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 7, 2006:
This is unbelieveable, great timing for this shot.

A visitor from Serbia And Montenegro posted Mon February 6, 2006:
Perfectly captured breathtaking exhibition. Well done.

A visitor from United States posted Mon February 6, 2006:
Excellent

A visitor from Canada posted Mon February 6, 2006:
That is one hell of a photo. Wow, that pilot surely is skilled and he or she did leave it just to the right moment to lift off the huge aircraft.

Amazing work by the pilot. That sure is a heart-stopping takeoff.

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 5, 2006:
Great moment

A visitor from Sweden posted Sun February 5, 2006:
Catching the moment.

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 5, 2006:
The photo is not pixelated and has excellent quality. The plane not to mention is also very amazing for i have never seen this airplane before

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun February 5, 2006:
Nice angle, great use of telephoto!!

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 4, 2006:
Unusual perspective

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat February 4, 2006:
What an excellent take-off! Talk about leaving it ot the last second! The photo has been taken at exactly the perfect time. It really does look as if the plane is about to enter the drink.

A visitor from Denmark posted Wed February 1, 2006:
Perfect shout. Go for it Sam !

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Even my non-aviation fanatic friends thought this was spectacular!

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Wow

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Being in the right place at the right time isn't everything, being there with the right camera, aimed in the right direction is. Excellent photo.

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 31, 2006:
WOW. That's all I can say.

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 31, 2006:
5 stars for Sam as always,It looks like that aircraft was loaded near max take off weight but
good to see they made it on time.

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Well-composed, and excellent instinct to catch this remarkable shot!

A visitor from Australia posted Tue January 31, 2006:

A visitor from Italy posted Mon January 30, 2006:
Once again Sam is the right man in the right place at the right time!

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 30, 2006:
This is one of those moments thatwill make a spotter soil his pants. He has maybe ten feet of runway left to get that center gear airborne. Spectacular shot! These are the kind of takeoffs I love to see.

A visitor from - posted Mon January 30, 2006:
This is a great example of the photographer being in the right place at the right time. The photo is so clear and calmly shot that it took me a few moments to realise just how close to the fence the plane must have been.

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 29, 2006:
Shot at the EXACT moment!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun January 29, 2006:
Nice Sam!

A visitor from Canada posted Sun January 29, 2006:
That is just amazing... down to the last inch of aphalt left. Wow... it certainly requires guts to perform such a T/O

A visitor from Germany posted Sun January 29, 2006:
A truly breathtaking shot! Seems like Phuket is a thrilling place for Ilyushin's to take off, hence another famous picture of you.

A visitor from Iceland posted Sun January 29, 2006:
