Aviation Photo #1003991 Boeing 747-246B - Orient Thai Airlines

[ Medium Large ]

As usual Orient Thai 747 classic showing me very very early rotation bound for BKK as OEA264 (an extra continue from ICN) in late afternoon. UTP looks very fine but someone should wash her...

A very hard take-off, I think this livery is very similar to British Airways one.

Thanks Canadian guy, that point of view make some illusion. After I do a little more mathematics this take-off roll angle shuld be around 13-15 degrees. Still pretty hard anyways. Cheers!

A Takeoff roll between 13 to 18 deg is apropiate for a B747. A 30 deg. rotate will end by a tailstrike!!

Because the details of the aircraft and ground are so clear, I'm able to 'live the experience', not just look at the picture.

Fantastic shot, it makes it hard to believe that the 747 is just a machine....

That is definitely not 15 degrees, his initial rotation probably was around there, but I bet he kept on increasing it. It does look near 25-30.
