Seat 23F, Gol Airlines, Rio de Janeiro to Sao Paulo

I hope everyone enjoyed Vladimir Karnozov’s excellent analysis while I was away on travel last week.

I can now disclose that I was on assignment in Brazil. I spent the week visiting Embraer’s aircraft factories scattered far across Sao Paolo state. I’ve never seen so much sugar cane in my life.

And I spent the weekend in Rio de Janeiro (er, aviation journalism is a rough business).

Here’s the video from my window seat (Obrigado, Luis!) on takeoff from Santos Dumont airport located in the heart of the city. This is truly one of the most amazing takeoff panoramas you’ll see anywhere in the world. Note the water appearing under the wing only a few seconds after rotation — yikes!
