Thats a cool video! Kinda reminds me of that video of that cub that tookoff in 50ft and landed in 10ft, All in a headwind ofcourse!
Yep....Empty, max thrust, flaps 20 combined with cold temps and a little headwind and the 757 will literally "ROCK YOUR WORLD"!Ive seen a UPS 75 rotate less than half the runways length at LAS before. Im assuming it was a light load. Then again those guys dont have to worry about passenger comfort either.
Damnnnn.... What was his climb rate, 9k ft per min?:drool:anic:you can normally expect to rotate to about 15 deg pitch on t/o in the 'fifty-seven', maybe 2 deg less w/ an eng failure.
we are leaving KCLT on a cold day w/ nothing but crew and min fuel. max thrust, static t/o and for a V2 climb we get about 22-25deg pitch. Tower said, 'never saw the top of a 757 like that...contact dept and thanks.'
better yet , friend of mine is ferrying 767-200 KORD KDFW at night, cold wx, min fuel, no alternate, severe clear. he asks for unrestricted clb to fl420 which twr say is approved. brake release to fl420 in little over 8 min... not bad for an airliner...
The VSI will only indicate 6000/fpm max so it was pegged through about 30,000...Damnnnn.... What was his climb rate, 9k ft per min?:drool:anic:
I forgot the digitals will read higher..I hear a Eagle crew on a repo flight climbed from 10,000 to 30,000 in just under 3 mins.
FYI the VSI on a 145 goes up to 9999 fpm.
Both the 757-200 and 767-200 are Very easy to land. Not much in the way of drag so easy to carry too much energy and have to toss out the gear to slow.I drool over 57's.
Always loved the bird. Just hope I can manage to find my way into one before I die, otherwise. . .I'll die an extremely disappointed individual (professionally).
