  1. NOT an emergency but a major screw up when the 2 pilots confused Arusha for Kilimanjaro airport, 27 miles away. Other pilots took off using 1000 meters with less than 10000 lt.

  2. I bet they made the this 767 as empty as possible (exact amount amount of fuel required for short hop from here to the nearest, most suitable airport), did a “standing takeoff” using TOGA power and pulled the yoke back well before even reaching “V1” so as to exploit its adhoc “unstick” speed.
