Am I the only one who doesn't think that's an Antonov, but rather an Ilyushin IL76?

The esteemed ATCO who posted this on youtube reckons it was an IL76. I guess he'd know.

Yes, you can check it out on the "Rumours and News" forum where there is some considerable debate about fields lengths and take off distances as well as some other videos and photos of close calls.

Reminds me of a flight I took back in the late 80's with TAROM (Air Rumania) in a Tu154....reckon we used ALL of the length of Heathrow, then Brussels then Buckarest, en-route to Cairo...made a quick note to self...NEVER buy "cheap" airline tickets!!!!

Particularly departing BRussels....I remember the noise of the undercarrage on the runway stopped with a thud as the runway finished...I think we hit some runway end lights!!!

Reminds me of a few years ago, when George Dubya was leaving Canberra. The United Airlines chartered 747 carrying his press contingent and a supply of S'mores was rather heavy and slow to clamber off the runway. I feared for the localiser antenna that day, too.

Great genuine honest footage with a real commentary, well captured there.
I think there where 2 things fast running out, one the recording tape the other the rwy !!! Lucky it's not a hot place CB generally.

I used to watch them out of mwanza, tanzania (elev 3000') use 3km of runway and only just airborne at the end of the runway.. Ofcourse about 2 yrs ago one didn't make it and ended up in lake victoria. Its always scary to watch.

With all these 100% of runway length takeoffs that are so common by Russian aircraft and not that many overruns (yes there are quite a few but proportionally few) could it be Russian SOP that just says keep it on the ground for as long as possible?

A number of transport catagory Russian airliners also have single engine take off charts for twins.

Makes for interesting performance considerations!!!

You know it's bouncing when the ground spoilers don't know whether to stay deployed or not!!!

Who knew ATC had a sense of humour? Nice one lads!

Holy Ghost! Reminds me of an An-124 in the very early nineties, enroute from Singapore to (I think) Melbourne with a load of tractors. On departure, in the early hours of the morning, the thing ran from threshold to threshold on an 11,000 foot runway and finally lurched into the air. The controller on duty was mortified that the said airframe refused to climb, departed controlled airspace at the edge of the control zone and didn't make it back into controlled airspace until around 100 miles south-east on the track that went to overhead Tindal. Fortunately, lowest-safe up there is around 1500' for a long way from the field. God knows what the result would have been if there was any terrain.
