Should have stood on the brakes for a while with full throttle!! A rolling take off was not a good idea. I guess they found that out.....

We have smirnoff.

That must have had the pilots packing themselves. Any motorists on the road at the end of the runway would hae got an eyeful too.

I hope they checked their gear for pieces of perimeter fence!

I think that they would have been more likely to be checking their undies.
That was one hell of a close shave.

Im pretty sure, they had huge hangover to notice such a little detail, as running out of runway...

They might have just held it down for a little extra speed on that hot day, just to get any
extra they could. It'd be more fun to get the comments from inside the cockpit.

Fully loaded B-24s were doing this on a regular basis during WW2. The pilot had to use every inch and rotate smoothly, otherwise the heavily loaded bombers stalled out and crashed on takeoff. Accidents like that happened sometimes.
