Remark Photographer
N408MC (cn 29261/1192) (Photo 1 of 2). Take-off at 36L 9:21PM. Heavy smoke (rubber scraping) due to an off-center nose gear while at full thrust. This resulted in an aborted take-off. Emergency services rushed out immediately and the runway was closed. After inspection and reset the 2300 meters of runway left was enough to take off again and the aircraft was cleared by the tower.

Beautiful airplane

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat May 25, 2013:
One minor thing for clarity; while I suppose the comment of my fellow US A.netter was of value, 'no.1 engine' (meant is the not spinning one, leftmost in the pic, the ac's most right) should be 'no. 4' engine. Counting L to R, plane's perspective of course.

The details,they were very lucky.this could have ended in big tears.

It should run onto the grass. But why this case did not?

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 6, 2008:
Great shot! i think that number one engine was shutdown and thats why the rudder is like that.

A visitor from Germany posted Fri April 4, 2008:
"off-center" is describing it pretty mildly - the nose wheel is in cross runway direction.
Look at the heavy tail rudder deployment, these pilots semm to be quite cold blooded fellas.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri November 2, 2007:
Yes, I think so too... an extraordinay pic, but I like it, also cos this is the first pic I've ever seen of an Emirates 747... Do they only use them for cargo?

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 26, 2006:
It looks like as though the number 1 engine (left most one in the picture) is shut down and not spinning (compare it with other 3 engines). The pilot is using full rudder to offset the thrust difference instead of a wheel lock.

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 6, 2006:
Look at the rudder... it's going towards the same direction as the wheel. doesn't make sense to me.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue August 1, 2006:
WOW, how is such a thing possible? Strange it just took-off some hours later.
