In the Cockpit As the World’s Biggest Plane Takes Off

Clip: Episode 1

The cockpit is rigged with cameras covering all angles of the take-off as this massive 100 ton machine hurtles down the runway. It couldn’t happen without ‘lift’, and ‘thrust’ – the two fundamental forces necessary for flight to take place. It must reach its critical speed within a matter of seconds, and once the plane has crossed this threshold, there can be no turning back.
