I saw this and had to share - this is an MU-2 doing a max performance takeoff, departing Port-de-Paix in Haiti. It rotates in about 500 feet. Watch it in HD for the full awesomeness of hi-def pedestrians walking along the runway.
We took this plane in and out of 3000' ice-covered gravel strips in the north. The MU-2 is a magical, if unforgiving airplane.
