Frankfurt: A dramatic video footage has emerged online, showing a passenger jet touching runway after failed attempt to take off at Frankfurt Airport.
A student pilot at Germany's Frankfurt Airport, who watched the plane trying to take off, captured the incident on camera.
In the video, Royal Air Maroc jet can be seen speeding on the runway and attempting to take off as the pilot lifts the plane's nose wheel off the ground.
Soon after, the plane's wheels touch back on the ground towards the end of the runway, marking a failed take off attempt.
However, the pilot once again lifts the nose wheel of the plane and it successfully takes off in the second attempt.
The video footage has gone viral on social media. "An amazing catch! At least they got into the air eventually!," wrote a user on YouTube.
While few people speculated a technical fault in the airplane, others blamed the pilot for negligence. "Even if the mistakes had been made, aborting the take-off could've been a safer option, than putting the passengers, crew and aircraft at risk in this dangerous situation," commented one user....
