Recreating The "Crazy Late Takeoff From St. Maarten"

This is my first Screenshots topic, so let me know your thoughts.

Some of you have probably seen the Crazy Late Takeoff From St. Maarten with the World Atlantic Airlines MD-80.

I decided to recreate it in IF using a Blue1 B717 instead.

All the more reason we need the MD-80 in the game!

Great photos!


Wow! That is pin point accurate! Credits to you on that

That’s how it works ;)
How did you lift off that late, low N1 or late takeoff roll or high VR or…?

It took a few tries but I maintained around 145 kts until the end of the runway.

You definitely have to time it well to not lift up by yourself before that point, right?

Well done, thanks for the explanation!
