VIDEO: Super Tucano on takeoff

Embraer has released video showing a critical moment of the Super Tucano’s recent demonstration to the US Air Force. As Embraer competes against the Hawker Beechcraft AT-6 for a USAF contract, the Super Tucano showed that it can take off from a dirt strip — and bounce over a criss-crossing concrete runway. The demonstration was held earlier this year in — and I’m not making up the name of this city — Truth and Consequences, N.M.

    REMINDER: Mute the sound on the video. Horrible, horrible music.

    The super tucano is certainly the sweetest-looking of the bunch…

    And yet another reason why the Super Tucano is the ideal aircraft for CAS in a COIN campaign.

    There is video somewhere of the AT-6B doing the same, think I’ve seen it (or part of) on the AvWeek site.

    Stephen- just curious, did you ever got a hold of those Super Tuc posters from Sierra Nevada?
