    Are we out of trim? Who did the weight and balance anyway?

    Doing flight performance tests. That's all. Every new plane design has to test its limits on roll out and maximum angle of attack at R2 (rotation speed to achieve flight)

    At first glance I assumed this was a photoshoped image, Later on I have read it was an intentional test. What on earth would be left burning that visable on the runway?

    Don't know what airbus uses but Boeing used a plank of wood fastened to the underside to perform the exact same test to its 777's

    I've heard planes do that when they have worms.

    The test is actually one to compute "minimum unstick speed"...VMU: minimum unstick speed. check out google for more info

    Intentional Test. Sparks from titanium pads mounted in the contact area. All airliners go through this as part of type certification flight testing.

    That really happened to me once...
    I was not happy with the pilot, at least he apologized. It was a
    737, though.

    ZZ
    Its a test tail strike. It is done on purpose to test the resistance of the fuselage and it also shows if the plane can take off being dragged and slowd down by the ground. Any new plane design goes through this phase...

    ZZ is correct. This is entirely intentional.

    Emphasis ZZ iz rite completly intentional..... itz a test to prove that the cargo hold waz built properly itz routine i do it all the time but it gets bumpy in the cockpit and all the alarms and warning lights go off, which is good

    Hey Fred? Yeah, Bob? There's a law of Physics that says a tail heavy airplane over-rotated drags your mass. Remember that one in the future. Bob, kiss my mass!

    Never try to do thrust vectoring in an Airbus A340!
