    No bullshit......FedEx cargos come out of Memphis at a higher angle than that..........Over densely populated 'burbs......Anyone living there can back me on that........I watch them all the time waiting for a stall like that.........

    Not likely......I've hauled Jet fuel into the main FedEx hub for years, And know a bunch of the handlers and have sat in while they load the "Tubs" With all the freight in them....It's really fascinating to watch.....They pack them in on locking rails and there is no empty space for shifting....You could invert the plane and shake it like a rag and those tubs aren't going anywhere....He just seemed to have too much nose up angle with too little take off speed.....You should see the take offs out of Memphis, They will scare the shit out of you......Cargos do not have to adhere to take off rules like passengers do, Angles of take offs, Turn angles etc....So they come off the runway with such an angle that they look like they just hover for a second before they stand those big fuckers on a wing tip and make a turn....If the airport was out of town like most it wouldn't be so scary, But it's like they built this fucker first and then built the town around it....TehLivingDeth would love it cause it's mostly 'de bleack 'burbs for miles around it, But if they have one go down it could go down in down town Memphis which is just a few miles away....And another thing thats a recipe for disaster....Memphis' airport is actually THREE full sized airports in one.....Airlines, FedEx, UPS, AND the Air National Guard flying a dozen C-5's out of it......From Midnight till 6am, It's the busiest airport in the world.....The FedEx's and UPS planes lining up for miles in three directions for landings, And from 3:30 on take-offs by the dozens.....As busy as the flight deck of an aircraft carrier.......

    That driver must have ice water in his veins. How do you witness something like that and not utter a single "Oh shit!" or "Fuck me!"? He does say "Fuck" about a minute after the accident, but it seems to be more about being delayed from continuing on.
