Seen plenty of “touch and go’s” but a “go and touch” that’s a first.

Captain, we reached V 0.5, shall we rotate?

Captain was like, “Watch this, I used to do this on my bike all the time when I was a kid.”

Perhaps the flight computer was given the wrong takeoff weight… and the autothrottles then gave the wrong power setting… Then the pilot went to manual, and gave full power. Whatever, its a big “please explain”.

Plane is too heavy to take off. Pilot suppose to take longer take off path but he didn’t. He could cause major accident. Pure human error

A number of facts = weight, air temp, thrust performance, V-1 call. How about “flaps 30”? Note flaps or am I not seeing them deployed? Whatever – human error.

Should have selected take off flap setting. Ever heard of check lists?

Looks to me that he just rotated to early.

Well, for the plane in most cases V1=Vr. I guess they got used to this very much and at that take off they were heavy, or the rwy was short so V1 was a lot earlier than Vr. Pilot heard V1 and rotated forgetting he needs to wait for Vr…

Would a more cautious pilot have aborted and tried again? Unless the runway was very long, I would have thought that such a delayed takeoff could have ended badly.
