    A fully loaded Russian IL-76 cargo plane...... payload 1 million pounds!!!!
    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....

    thrust divided by weight equals lift ratio
    I've seen a 727 take out the REIL strobes before

    I've never heard of Lift Ratio before- Lift to Drag- and Power to Weight yes...but not lift ratio. Thrust is not a variable in the lift equation...that being said- high gross weight does require more lift to take off...Greater L comes from speed, depending on the other variables.

    .......l/d


    the thrust-to-weight ratio of an aircraft is the inverse of the lift-to-drag ratio because thrust is equal to drag, and weight is equal to lift

    example:
    757-200
    thrust 2x42,670 / weight 226000 = .3776

    space shuttle @ takeoff
    = 1.5

    f18
    = 1.0043

    il-76
    4x26,500 = 106000 weight 1000000 = .1060
