F-WWCA (cn 360) The most beautiful aircraft for a great picture ! Conducting VMU trials - the tail strike is done intentionally for testing purposes to determine the minimum speed at which the aircraft will lift off the ground.

Longer larger yeah.. don't know about smoother though! And the back of the aircraft might have some noise in it aswell ;)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu May 10, 2007:
That is a rather cool picture it must be quite intense when you are in the cockpit doing the trials as you rotate and don't lift off straight away. Nice one guys
