    Just to show how quick a B744 is able to reach Vr with a minimal takeoff mass.



    ... and...

    Made my day as an aircraft photography enthusiast.

    August 24 2009

    In flight
    Just over 100 years since the first sustained and controlled heavier-than-air powered flight, flying machines are now commonplace, used for transport, freight, warfare, rescue and pleasure just for starters. Aerospace technology is still the realm of both big business and entrepreneurs - Moscow recently hosted an airshow in which contracts totaling $10 billion were signed, and Virgin Galactic is still working toward a private spaceliner business. Collected here are recent photographs of various flying machines in action or on display around the world. (40 photos total)

    Awesome compilation of aviation photos.
    These are some of my most favourite among all the 40 of them...

    Was just having a chat with a pilot from ANA and this is what he defined CAAS as, "Committee Against Aviation in Singapore".

    Changi Air Base (West) in the background, the race will probably be conducted on RWY 20R and taxiway Whisky Papa.
    Any idea what's the takeoff weight of the 747 and the thrust of the engines on that day (temperature), is the thrust to weight ratio higher than the Porsche 911? What variables are important? Wonder which will be faster.

    Hmm, these question seems awfully familiar...

    Anyway I'll hazard a guess with reference to the charts available to me based on a 200,000 kg total take-off weight and under the following operational conditions...
    • Altitude region A,
    • Flaps 20 with maximum rated thrust,
    • Dry and straight runway with wind factor not taken into account.


    V1: 90 KIAS
    Vr: 105 KIAS (note: see below)
    V2: 130 KIAS

    As the 105 KIAS rotation speed is below the Vmcg (Minimum Controllable Ground Speed), 122 KIAS in such a situation, the Vmcg figure has to be used in lieu of the calculated Vr figure instead. Therefore the aircraft is only rotated at 122 KIAS and the takeoff roll should not take more than 800 meters (guesstimate).

    * KIAS --> (Knots, Indicated Air Speed)
    225.90 km/hr rotation speed in a 800 meters takeoff roll and a duration of approximately 6 to 8 seconds and this is for a B744, Jett8 B747-281F/SCD (9V-JEB "Shogun") might just take little longer with its older GE CF6-50E2 engines.

    Hehe,

    well all we can hope for bttr SLO is perhaps lower temp. Seems dat density would b the most easiest factor .. Since pressure here in tropical Singapore is mostly constant .. hardly changes ..

    Somebody thinking the same way I guess.

    According to Wikipedia, the Porsche 911 GT3 will take 13 seconds to cover 400 meters and reach 190 km/h.

    Seems as if this is another location whereby UAV flight test and training are conducted, most probably for naval reconnaissance and surveillance operations.
    Public released information through CAAS NOTAM Reference ID No. WSSSYNYX - 8/09 (2009.09.02). Military OPSEC observed with no violation.

    Between 2009.08.31 0801 hours to 1700 hours and 2009.09.02 0801 hours to 2009.09.04 1700 hours flight test by a mini UAV will take place within 1000m radius of 01°16'15.0672"N 103°37'31.917"E (within Tengah ATZ). Danger height 200ft. All pilots are to exercise caution.
