TAP A339 at Luanda on Apr 12th 2022, became airborne on runway end, dust from runway
Last Update: July 1, 2022 / 18:53:09 GMT/Zulu time
Portugal's GPIAA reported the aircraft took with a gross mass of 191394 kg at 163 KIAS (Vr) exactly at the end of the runway 7 seconds after full thrust had been applied. The crew had, without identifying that they had not selected intersection E for their takeoff computations, computed the takeoff performance for a full length takeoff. Takeoff from Intersection E leaves a TODA of 2140 meters/TORA of 1900 meters, the full length of the runway is 3700 meters. The aircraft thus performed a flex takeoff at 85% N1. The investigation is ongoing.
