A few year ago, there was a small plane accident that tied up SRQ's 14/32, which is 9,000ish ft. I watched a US EMB170 and a DL MD88 take off on runway 4, which is only 5,000 ft. They had to use that runway on short notice. The MD-88 went full power, but held the brakes for about 20 seconds. I was standing only about 150 feet away, off the side. Very thrilling !!!
