Video Discussion: Boeing 747-8 performs ultimate rejected takeoff

Name: Boeing 747-8 performs ultimate rejected takeoff

Category: Boeing Aircraft

Date Added: 26 May 2013 - 05:50 PM

Submitter: Tom Allensworth

Short Description: None Provided

 

It's one of the most dramatic tests for a new airplane as the pilot slams on the brakes while going 200 miles per hour (320 km/hr). Watch as the 747-8 Freighter, loaded to maximum takeoff weight and equipped with 100% worn out brakes, perform a rejected takeoff without thrust reversers.

I saw this earlier before it was released. Couldnt believe that stopping power and with bare brakes! The temperature readings they must have got must have been tremendous, yet no fire. 

Awesome.
