Footage of RAF Tornado fighter jet aborted takeoff due to engine issue

The Panavia Tornado is a family of twin-engine, variable-sweep wing multirole combat aircraft, jointly developed and manufactured by Italy, the United Kingdom, and West Germany.

There are three primary Tornado variants:

  • The Tornado IDS (interdictor/strike) fighter-bomber,
  • The suppression of enemy air defences Tornado ECR (electronic combat/reconnaissance)
  • The Tornado ADV (air defence variant) interceptor aircraft.

Here is an Old Video of Tornado fighter jet from RAF Lossiemouth 617 Squadron aborted take-off due to issues with one of its engines.

 

Here is another Video of normal RAF Tornado takeoff on afterburners

 

What is a rejected takeoff (RTO) or aborted takeoff?

In aviation terminology, a rejected takeoff (RTO) or aborted takeoff is the situation in which it is decided to abort the takeoff of an aeroplane.

There can be many reasons for deciding to perform a rejected takeoff, but they are usually due to suspected or actual technical failures, such as an engine failure, fire, incorrect configuration, aircraft controllability or environmental conditions such as wind shear.

A rejected takeoff is normally performed only if the aircraft’s speed is below the takeoff decision speed known as V1, which for larger multi-engine airplanes is calculated before each flight.

Single-engine aircraft will reject any takeoff after an engine failure, regardless of speed, as there is no power available to continue the takeoff.

Even if the airplane is already airborne, if sufficient runway remains, an attempt to land straight ahead on the runway may be made. This may also apply to some light twin-engine airplanes.

Before the takeoff roll is started, the auto brake system of the aircraft, if available, is armed. The autobrake system will automatically apply maximum brakes if the throttle is reduced to idle or reverse thrust during the takeoff roll once a preset speed has been reached.
