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.

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

Great shot! i think that number one engine was shutdown and thats why the rudder is like that.

"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.

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?

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.

Look at the rudder... it's going towards the same direction as the wheel. doesn't make sense to me.

WOW, how is such a thing possible? Strange it just took-off some hours later.
