Ive always thought the guy who says "Ill film the crash" sounds like Scanno !


i suppose v1 was at half of the runway... they
just had to continue *g*

the il-76 has a nice engine sound. i like that.


Anyone else feels the plane in the foto has an evil grin?

Seeing how it turned out, it might have been more of
a grimace of sheer terror !

Given how Russian pilots fly, I am pretty sure they were not clutching the yoke and fixating on the Vr figure stuck to their instrument panel while the threshold came closer. They must have calculated that they would make it, and then likely just went for the full range. I agree that they seem to get bloody close to dragging their feet through something, but that is a matter of aiming...

Hmmm... we'll have to check with Ivan about this.

No fuss about! We payed for the whole runway, we use the whole runway....

While walking Carolina to school this morning I saw the two local swans lining up for takeoff on a 200 m runway. Apparently they use a different safety system. After 190 meters of heavy motoring they decided to abort and stopped in 5 meters. Over to you, Martin.
