You guys obviously never flew the KC-135A model with the water injected engines. Looks fine to me...

Been there, done that taking-off from Plockton in a B747 (don't know HTF they got it in ). Worked a dream as the Jumbo paddled across the water just like a swan.

Used to work baggage under S concourse at SEA (way back in the day), and used to watch the CO 742's fully loaded to Tokyo take most of the long runway to take off. A couple times I was sure the mains barely missed the approach lights at the end of the runway.

I'm sure it was just an optical illusion, though.

I used to park my car in the employee lot at the end of 27R in Atlanta.

When Kiwi was headed for the west coast in their old 727-200's with the dash 7 engines, all the car alarms would go off....

Guess that's the NOISE, Huck. When Bryanair used to use the 200s out of EGNT they sounded like heavyweights ripping the sky apart (707s or B52s) - but that was maybe because they were keen to get back to Eire quick before the bars closed.

A lot of people have been saying this, but looking at other t/o pics of the IL86 on A.net, it appears that's the normal t/o flap config. Prolly just a particular quirk of that a/c.
