Just revealed (no really hot news, since it happened last year) is the fact that a Norwegian B787 bound for Buenos Aires from Gatwick airport, London, managed to start its take-off 417 meter further down the runway from the proper take-off point on a 2.560 meter long runway. Analysis shows a 12 ton overweight for that particular remaining runway length (2.143 m) and the conclusion that an aborted takeoff in case of an engine failure at the most critical moment (known as V1) would have sent it careening into whatever geography lies beyond that runway end. 270 people onboard.
