Del 04/86. "City of Tamworth", featuring in perhaps the wierdest and most unusual picture I have ever taken of a Jumbo. Have a look at this aircraft which is believe it or not in the very first stages of rotation. The tail appears to be lifting before the nose is, in a way similar to the AN-124 or a C-141. The aircraft just lifted off the runway with very little pitching up of the nose. My only thoughts are it was an empty flight and the crew used a lot of flap!
