Take-Off thrust applied, starting rolling on runway 24, destination Point-a-Pitre (PTP) in Guadeloupe. Special thanks to the crew and to my friend Yann, captain on this flight, for welcoming me in the cockpit.

What a lucky man, Patrick thank you for share this moment. I love a lot this plane and I can only imagine how it feel inside the cockpit when the A330 lift off and see the blue sky!
Really thanks...

Why does the lower centre screen shows "Please wait"?

LOL! Older 330's use CRT screens instead of LCDs. Not sure if it's the screen's fault or the electronics behind them, but the CRT screens having an annoying delay with 'PLEASE WAIT' displayed when switching screens. The photog took the picture right as the system display was changing screens at the application of TO thrust.

It says please wait because once you set Take Off Thrust the display automatically changes from the 'wheels' page to the 'secondary engine page'. This page then stays until 400 feet where it automatically changes to the 'cruise page'.
