This Huge 747-8 “Wing Wave” Looked Scary


Earlier today, a video of a brand new Cargolux 747-8 taking off was posted by Dipankar Bhakta.  The takeoff looked normal at first. Shortly after rotation, the jet rolled very aggressively to the left and then the right.    While airplanes have been known to do a “wing wave” on departure from Boeing Field in the past, this one definitely stood out.   It is not typical for an airplane to roll more than a few degrees left or right when it is so low to the ground. We’ll just leave this video here and let you judge for yourself.  Feel free to tell us your thoughts below…
