TakeOff from St. Maarten as seen from cockpit 747.
To answer some remarks from viewers:
Why is T/O so fast and short? Well aircraft weighs only 260.000 kgs (max = 396.000kgs) in this T/O with only 30.000 kgs of fuel for a flight time of 1hr15min to Curacao (you can see the landing here: ). With this low weight Vr is 125kts and climbout speed is 155kts(=V2 + 10kts)
Why is V1 and Vr called so close?
Because, when a/c is very light you have to increase V1 to the Vmcg(=Vmin control ground)speed. If you don't and start flying below this speed and an outboard engine fails, you are not able to control a/c. That's why in this T/O V1 is the same as Vr.
Yes, it's a 747. No, it's not fake.
