Risky IL-76 Take-off Captured on Video

The take-off uses all (and I mean all) of RWY 30 (1679 M) at Canberra, Australia, obviously shot from within the TWR.

The commentary is priceless!

nice vid. I suppose a RTO would have been consummated in the hedgerow somewhere.

Compared to the Ant 12 and 24s we see in Africa that was an F18... mostly they rely on the curvature of the earth to gain altitude.

Not really overweight (rate of climb seems reasonable), it is rather 1679m runway is a bit short for IL76... They normally looking for 2500m+

Nah...He was probably using the extra runway length for "improved climb performance".
What about the 35 foot screen height at the end of the runway if he had an engine failure?

Sometimes--- on some types--- the OEI climb requires less distance than the AEO case because of less acceleration on one engine [i.e less distance covered] and therefore OEI distance [first and second segment distance] will be within the AEO TORA. i.e the AEO safety factor is exploited OEI---but, this guy definitely didn't cross the screen at 35'--- so I'd say

Most likely a reduced power takeoff to save the engines, and noise.... dont want to scare the koala bears.

Take it by the fact it was in AUS that it was fairly hot on that too that probably added to it.

We should be thankful not everybody is perfect. How else could we feel superior.

Do you have a METAR for their TO time? 50 off between the 2 RWY you mentioned and I am pretty sure you are well aware of the Il-76 X-Wind limits, aren't you?

Too many chiefs, not enough indians even downunder...

Just to correct an important point...
I was in Canberra 2 days ago and go there pretty regularly.
That takeoff is on runway 17 which has 2683m plus another odd 600m overun/stopway. If you look at the video the terminal is to the right of the intersection and south of the short crossing runway 12/30. I have never seen anything bigger than a DHC8-400 use 12/30.

That takeoff WAS from runway 17 (2683m), not 12.
