POWERFUL Boeing 777 Takeoffs From CLOSE UP | Sydney Airport Plane Spotting

  • Published on Mar 15, 2018
  • Sydney Airport features an amazing variety of B777 flights that can be seen throughout the day. It's by far one of the most thrilling aircraft to view because of the sheer power produced by the worlds biggest jet engines; the GE90s. The incredibly loud whine of the engines as it flies past never fails to amaze!
    Featured in this video is the majority of regular Boeing 777 operators that serve Sydney. It's taken from a few vantage points to showcase the power of these huge birds from different perspectives!
    Without further ado, I hope you enjoy!

    Excellent shot of the semi-levered gears in-action! Look at 8:18: just as the gear doors begin to open for the retract sequence, the gear trucks rotate toe-down. This was an ingenious Boeing solution to decrease tailstrike risk and increase rotation pitch (and therefore gross takeoff weight) with the lengthened 777-300 fuselage. By locking the gear trucks parallel to the fuselage on takeoff, the plane rotates on the axle of the rear pair of tires, effectively lengthening the gear strut WITHOUT having to raise the plane higher when compared with the original 777-200. Then -- to fit within the existing-design wheel wells -- the gears unlock and tip toe-down prior to retraction. Very cool -- thank you.

    HD Melbourne Aviation... I doubt I shall ever find a better collection of plane spotting videos on youtube. Or anywhere else, for that matter. What a brilliant set of work. Do tell: by what sort of black magic do you manage to produce such silky smooth long-lens shots?

    • HD Melbourne Aviation
      HD Melbourne Aviation  Year ago

      Truely appreciate that mate, thank you so much! Nothing too magical, just a sturdy tripod and a touch of post stabilisation to patch up a few of the jitters you get when you film with long focal lengths

      Thanks mate! I was surprised that the footage worked out for the SQ 772. It started raining which destroyed the visibility and it rotated miles before the others!

    Nice video mate! Loved the different spots that you chose! The 777 is an amazing Aircraft to film, and the sound of them are amazing! And also love to see some more Sydney videos come out! Sadly Melbourne doesn’t get all the 777 like British airways, and Delta. But amazing video! Massive like!!

    • HD Melbourne Aviation
      HD Melbourne Aviation  Year ago

      Thanks a lot mate! Always a treat to see the 777s in action, its the only twin engined aircraft that captures my attention haha! Plenty more Sydney footage to come! Yeah its a shame that Melbourne doesnt get a few of the good 777s that Sydney gets, although we have a few that they don't have ;)

    Sucks QANTAS doesn't have any 777's, gotta get our fix from all the other airlines flying their heavies in, in this day and age that's unacceptable :-) Should have bought 777's instead of the A380's. And speaking of the 380's when are they going to put them on the Sydney to Melbourne route, could probably ease some congestion with a well timed gate slot.

    • HD Melbourne Aviation
      HD Melbourne Aviation  Year ago

      Thats actually I really good idea, if Qantas ever get their remaining A380s that they've ordered, atleast one could easily be justified to be restricted to the SYD-MEL leg. They could free up a lot of their A330s constantly flying the route and expand internationally with them too.
