Wouldn't surprise me if those old engines don't produce as much thrust anymore as they used to.

That’s a classic that I watch every few months. Anyone know what year that was from and what Aussie airport was it at?

The Il-62 is still a long-haul plane, and a fairly old one at that. Most modern airliners with comparable range require more than 2,500 m at MTOW.

Wait, you are Planesafari? Kudos for your videos, I really enjoy them! Always filmed from the best seat and with great sound quality!

I have flown on quite some Russian metal. I have worked on many as well and I know lots of crews. It’s just something completely different, I always loved it. In the case of this Rada Take off, most likely they were a bit heavy and needed the speed. I doubt it was on purpose. They retracted the gear 5cm above ground, hahaha. But it is quite common to use the runway more than needed, they have in a certain situation a kind of need for speed, and if you don‘t spend much tome on weight and balance, well, then you need to get your business going and gear up some time...
My „heaviest“ Russian take off was on a TU3 from IKT to MJZ. I remember seeing many passengers on this full flight with some 5 bags or so during check in - they were memorable to me, because in comparison to others they „only“ had 5 bags. In the end the loaded a full truck of bags somehow into the TU3 and off we were going.
The acceleration was not worth mentioning and after a few second and very little speed increase I had to laugh a bit because of the fact that I was the only one on this Tushka not needing to be there (and I thought for the first time in my life, do I really need this?), and after 2/3rds of the runway and still heavy on the main landing gear I became a bit emotionally discomfortable...but she flew. Not that sporty, but heck, after 15min and burning off the first ton of fuel in 300m above ground we steadily climbed. It turned out to be my most memorable flight, on my favorite airliner, an airliner for real men, stylish and beautiful, a beast and jet graceful, a dino roaring out the glory of long gone aviation eras... it was a remarkable crew, wonderful airline, great people and the greatest airliner ever to roar through the skies.
Here‘s a video of that take off. IKT has about 3600m usable runway, so we used up about 3km excluding a backtrack of about 300m. And yes, we paid for the complete runway, so we shall use it:

If this incident gets reported (under EASA legislation it would be an ASR/MOR for sure - not sure about the local laws applicable to this airline) it will probably be investigated as a serious incident. Takeoff performance calculations have to ensure a screen height of 35ft at the runway end if an engine fails at V1. Looking at the video the aircraft did not achieve 35ft at the runway end, even though all engines were operative. Therefore there must have been an error in takeoff performance calculations (or some other error, f.e. thrust setting problem, engine problem etc etc).

I don‘t remember a single flight on a Russian airliner were someone made a calculation.
