Nice footage Roger, I didn't expect the wing to flex before the nose wheel lifted, nor the smoke from the brakes!

Thanks for posting the footage.

More great pics.  Did you manage to get 558 and 655 in the same shot at all?   :)

It's always rather interesting to see the engine come out.  As someone who has never 'played' with such things I find it seems a bit odd that the engines are relatively short.  The length of the intakes and jet pipes make you think the engines must be really long.
