Some proctologist in China had at least two emergency procedures that evening to remove the seat cushions.

Not to be too nitpicky, but it was China Airlines, not Air China…guess I’ve been reading these forums too long. :laughing:


#4

Good catch!


#5

um…oh ya…V1…Rotate.

During my takeoff rolls, if the airspeeds don’t match up (“70 kts cross check”) we abort. :unamused:

No real excuse for the error of mistaken identity of China Airlines/Air China, other than a long day Friday at work. I thought maybe I misread it from right to left???

However, I thought, ‘What is the difference’. After all I live in Toronto, we joke about Asian car drivers all the time, though I had a Japanese lady tell me it’s not the Japanese that can’t drive, it’s the Chinese.

Soooo, I Googled China Airlines, and the first sentence from Wikipedia states, ‘Not to be confused with Air China!’, hmmmm.

Wikipedia history on China Airlines.

Well it turns out, Air China is from, well, China. However, China Airlines is from Formosa/Taiwan!! Who knew??? Not I. Sorry.

I probably wouldn’t have noticed had I not flown on Air China between Beijing and Guangzhou back in June.

Nice video regardless…nothing like using 101% of the runway!


#8

The plane was carrying no passengers. It was ferrying to Japan.


#9

Right, butt :laughing: I bet the pilot and copilot paid a visit though.


#10

If that’s the case, the pilots really have no excuse because the plane should have been flying extremely light… :open_mouth:
