BA Empty 777-200ER Very short takeoff

Found this video on YouTube of the rare moment a British Airways 777-200ER landed at Edinburgh, Scotland from Atlanta, USA to bring home some Ryder Cup players. A 777 is not usually used on this route so the plane was bound for a short, empty flight down to London Heathrow after this.

Since the aircraft was empty it took off using a very short amount of runway. It didn’t even completely pass the landing markers. Watch the video at 3:23 minutes to watch the massive 777-200ER lift up so lightly. This can be found elsewhere quite easier but it’s nice to watch.
