A fully loaded Russian IL-76 cargo plane...... payload 1 million pounds --- 500 Tons!!
This really raises the pucker factor....

Listen to the "controllers" in the tower who are Australian: Ya gotta love it.
"The Vodka Burner" as the Aussies call it, literally uses every inch of runway....... WATCH THE WHOLE VIDEO.. (shot from the tower) You can HEAR THE CONVERSATION IN THE TOWER. They are incredulous--that it makes it....


  1. Lex posted this a while back... and I enjoy it every time I see it!

  2. Yeah, they were moments from being an aluminum cloud in the middle of an expanding explosion...

  3. I'm glad you posted it.. I'd never seen it before! Very good view!!
