Not a lot of photos have me speechless, but this is one of them. Sheer power, a dramatic late takeoff and a super aircraft 10/10

What if an engine goes out at V1, could this 747 airborne still? A very hairy situation from spectator's view.

To the visitor before me, the approaching yet will not land if the 747 is on the runway or failed to take off. It'll execute a go around.

The 747 would not take off here if it was not safe. It'll fly after it has passed the point of no going back, even if it loses an engine. It just might have to climb a bit slower, but it'll fly.

There's a operation called Go around...so the airplane aproaching wouldn't land if something happened during the 747 take-off...

btw great photo.

Heya...There are actually 3 birds in this picture...Just look at the 3rd bird near the no.1 engine...Looks like the bird is mocking the 747's Take off gesture... :-)

Shame shame for the late take-off. Could have ended badly. No, I'm talking about the bird, not the plane. ;)

That BAW 743 late take-off remids me of the Hawker Siddeley Trident eternally long take-off roll.
