This gotta be the take off roll of the year! I really applaud the crew for making such a nice departure with its landing gear up! Crews should do this more often! We might be out there taking pictures!

Sure...as long as there's enough time to recycle the gear in time to put rubber on the runway in the admittedly unlikely case of a total engine failure.

Nothing that unusual? Maybe retraction of the landing gear a few seconds earlier. Nevertheless a very nice shot.

Once the plane is airborne...it doesn't matter if they have an engine failure. Above v1, which is less than Vr...the are going to continue...

Awesome just perfect timing. I believe that after V1 it makes no difference, once on Vr and positive rate of climb, gear up ASAP will reduce resistance and thus help climb... anyways... perfect shot
