Video of the Week: Ilyushin IL76 Nail-Biting Runway Take-Off
A couple of weeks ago, we ran a pretty impressive video of some Alaskan pilots doing short-runway take-offs. This week, we offer up something that can only be described as the opposite — a Russian Ilyushin IL76 freighter making the most of a runway that seems nail-bitingly short in this clip from YouTuber jerrabomb.
"NSFW" Note: This video does contain some objectionable language — you'll see why as you wait for the Ilyushin to take to the air — so keep that in mind when playing it at the office or in the company of others.
Don't forget to send us links to any interesting videos you find out there. If you're impressed by it, there's a good chance other AVweb readers will be too. And if we use a video you recommend on AVweb, we'll send out an official AVweb baseball cap as a "thank you."
