Il-76s in Oz.

Found a link to this youtube piece on an Il-76 taking off from Canberra. It takes the WHOLE runway to barely get off the ground, where most aircraft take 2/3 of the runway to get airborne.

Filmed by (it seems) by one of the ATCs.

The commentary is priceless. Very Aussie-laconic, and a bit dark.

Arguably NOT the first Il-76 'lazy takeoff' (for want of a better term) either.

My internet connection is not really state of the art here and I cannot watch the take off. But in two week I will be at home for a while and certainly will look at it.
