Just saw this aircraft do virtually the same take-off out of SFO...without the JATO rockets. Not once, but TWO days in a row. I've seen it with and without the JATOs and I swear he did just as good without them. Two days in a row. I'm not saying the JATOS aren't necessary. I'm sure that if you had it at max takeoff weight you'd want even more than 8 JATOs.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue June 26, 2012:
I remember seeing this and thinking: "What is so special about this take-off. I've seen a Hercules take off before." and then it was all fire and loud and it was gone. Loved it! This photo reminds me of that day. Thank you.

A visitor from - posted Mon September 7, 2009:
Fat Albert is light on his feet! Re: The post asking about the rocket exhaust contacting the skin of the aircraft... (1) the JATO units are mounted on the main landing gear sponsons, which extend out from the sides of the fuselage, and (2) the units are canted away from the fuselage, ie, the thrust does not project parallel to the line of flight. Hope this helps. No slack in Marine Air!!!

A visitor from Mauritius posted Sun July 19, 2009:
How much thrust do the rockets produce?

A visitor from - posted Sun June 28, 2009:
4 stars. But I have a question - Is it safe to have the hot jet exhaust in direct contact with the skin of the airplane ? I would imagine it would set up a temperature differential (this would have long term structural consequences ?) ...as well as, spoil the paint job ? :)

Very good picture

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue September 16, 2008:
It was one of the best moments of the show!

A visitor from Finland posted Thu March 20, 2008:
JATO means "Jet Assisted Take-Off". you wrote "JATO Take off" :P so take off is there twice
