WTF - 2 bites of the cherry!


Recommended Posts

The clue was the A330 landing at the beginning of the video.

The incident happened at Frankfurt, see diagram below.

Wake turbulence from the A330 presented as a tailwind to the B737 reducing airspeed below safe takeoff airspeed.

So the crew lowered the nose and waited until they had regained the appropriate airspeed then made a safe takeoff.

ATC cleared the B737 too early.

I flew Royal Air Maroc once Casablanca to London on a 737.

f**k all to do with the topic but thought I'd tell ya😂

Very popular with our #2 carrier Westjet, Air Canada has always used A320 family. But now they’ve had a large purchase of MAX 8, will be a while before I jump on one of those
