This is definitely the best departure I saw this year ! This Antei operated by the Russian Air Force took off the runway 22 very hardly after a 2 hours stay in BTS. As you can see it used almost all the runway length as it is only about 10 meters above the ground in the end of 2900m long RWY22. What a pity that you can't hear the perfect sound of the eight blade counter rotating propellers. (Panasonic FZ30)

You can even see the coaxial propellors & ow the wings bend down past the flaps! Amazing details, and for that, 5 stars.

Perfect photo. And the whole aircraft on it. And the photo shows perfectly how heavy the aircraft must be. Only 10 metres above the ground at the end!

I really like this one!
