Too much.

The pilot of that plane was on the radio just after take off ordering a new pair of shorts and a longer runway to land on. That must have been one loaded down plane.

Along the lines of airplanes and brass balls, check this out...



Gald I wasn't on that plane, I'd need new shorts...

Mostly stock...

That looks like the old Hong Kong airport. It was famous for being difficult to get into and out of... One hell of a crosswind there to! I have a similar clip of a 747 crabbing into a landing that is crazy. I'll see if i can find it.

Watching the Russian jet take off reminds me of watching C-5s taking off when I was in the Air Force...you'd watch it slowly roll down the runway and think "crap, it's not gonna make it" then it just lifts at the last second.

No, I was stationed at an A-10 base in Louisiana, England AFB, which made it even scarier because we had such a small runway. Now I'm in AZ and near Luke AFB, an F-16 training base and see them occasionally. My wife calls the C-5s Shamu. Had a friend stationed out at Dover though.
