V2 The Point Of No Return
Favs: 0SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 29/32Score: 52.4% (0)4965 views

Weighing nearly a quarter of a million pounds this Boeing 757-200 accelerates through 145 knots (Vr) and begins its departure rotation. At a speed of 150 knots or V2 if the aircraft were to experience an emergency such as a blown tire or engine flame out the aircrew would have no choice but to commit the aircraft to flight. There would be no way to stop the aircraft safely in the 6000' of runway left. (5 years and 980 days ago)
