Due to a strong wind this Air India 747 had a high climb rate for a few seconds. Not much more room beneath the back part of the plane.

Whoa yeah! The strong wind definitely seems to have helped this jumbo off the tarmac and probably accounts for the near tail-strike!

Oooo ... that looks like a bit more than the 12° maximum pitch up to me. More precisely, it's the pitch attitude that's too high, not the climb rate. If the aircraft was actually climbing, the tail wouldn't be so close to the ground!! ;)

AI191 to EWR and back as AI144, the other flights from FRA so far are AI127/126 to ORD and another one called AI120 from and to Ahmedabad. This one actually is a Jumbo but with the start of the winter schedule AI says to replace it by the B772LR. Some are flights to Canada are also planned together with one daily cargo ops. That means 10 AI at the same time at FRA!!!
