    Did you catch all the work the pilot was doing with the nose wheel until the pressure wave built up under the wings?

    I don't fly, but that looked like it took some skill.

    Those silly soviets at it again!!!! It would impossible to compute your takeoff distance given the resistance of all that slush, and nothing short of a gamble knowing you could make it airborne before its game over (balls of steel)! I don't like to play test pilot, but enjoy the hell out of watching others try. Well played...

    I'm not sure which I would rather have: a gun stuck to my head; or forced to make that takeoff run. No sane pilot would attempt that voluntarily. That's playing Russian roulette with 5 loaded chambers.

    Considering the nose gear weight on that aircraft would break the pickup in two- and that all 4 tires blowing would be a given- no.


    But I maidja look! :p

    That may have been faked, but this wasn't. This took some skill.

    Okay, I'm guessing the tires must be filled with helium.
