CNBC: Is this the craziest takeoff ever?

Boeing released this footage of a 787 during a practice flight ahead of its involvement at the Paris Air Show.

The answer is no. It is definitely not the craziest takeoff ever. It's just click bait.

Have no fear though. I have searched the vast resources of the Internet and offer a suitably crazy alternative. Be sure to listen to the commentary at the end. It's not just crazy, it's bats^*t crazy! Enjoy.

For those interested, I found the probable cause of the crash.

Jumping the Gun...

In April of 1989, the National Transportation Safety Board released their conclusion as to the probable cause of the crash. The Board determined the probable cause was that directional control was not maintained, and poor judgment was exhibited, by the student, in connection with an uncontrolled vertical takeoff – all of which was caused by the student’s disregard to his instructor’s instructions.

After seeing the video. who would have guessed? ;)
