    Very cool photos.
    I remember one time in Budapest where I saw a TU-154 take off, level off at about 20 ft, pull up the landing gear at at the end of the runway climb at about 45 degrees!:shock: Obivously an ex-airforce pilot!:cool:

    Perhaps it went something like this one:

    Note that although the name says 737, the aircraft involved is actually a Airbus A319.

    That little A319 does a ripper climb, though i think it was an airshow flight. I also have to wonder if the EL AL was carrying much of a payload. Still i would rather be on a 777-200ER with those 2 incredible RR 895's than rely on those 4 old Kuznetsov's no matter what the payload. I am rather sure that the 777's using HKT, even heavy get up before the threshold marks :!:
