Visiting the cockpit of an airplane is an exciting experience, but is forbidden during takeoff or landing. Now a time lapse video shows how is a takeoff from the inside.
It’s amazing to see the numerous operations that pilots have to fulfill. They must check all systems, adjust the stabilizers, place the flaps in position and arm the automatic brakes, just in case the process need to be aborted.
Although only part of the total capacity of the engines is used during the flight, much of it is used in takeoff. Once on the runway, the plane could reach a speed of between 250 and 300 kilometers per hour.
