How far away is death? 747 disappears in thick fog


YouTube aviation station Cargospotter caught on video the 747 disappearing into a cover of thick clouds after departure at Liege Airport.

About the incident, the YouTube planespotter, Cargospotter, comments that “this Boeing 747 of Challenge Cargo disappeared in thick clouds right after taking off from runway 24L at Liege Airport. The weather was quite bad that day and I only visited the airport to film the amazing looking B747-400 Freighter of SF Airlines which is also a part of this video.”

For a pilot in a situation with this 747 departing into massively dense fog , we’re talking about zero visual ability. A YouTube observer described it as “flying into an abyss.”
