BOEING 747 MAX TAKEOFF WEIGHT Departure with SMOKING ENGINES + 4 B747 LANDINGS and DEPARTURES (4K)This Boeing 747 of Astral Aviation performed an extremly long takeoff run at Liege Airport that day while departing to Kotoka Airport (Accra) in Africa. I have never seen such a long take-off run on Liege` s runway 22L which as a length of 3700m. The 747 used at least 3300 meters which is quite impressive. Also note the smoke coming out of the engines while they were running on TOGA after departure. That smoke cloud which followed the B747-400 after departure reminded me of a Douglas Dc-8-63.
I also included another Boeing 747-400 of Saudia Cargo and a Boeing 747-8F of Air Bridge Cargo. Both of them performed a nice right turn in front of nicely illuminted clouds after departure while following the SID.
