MISC | "Jet Racing"

This thread is for videos that document two jets taking off at the same time. I understand that these circumstances may be rare, but they are fun to experience and watch. So without further adieu, here is the first clip from SFO International. United Airlines VS Virgin Atlantic Airways. Enjoy:

Two jets taking off at the same time aint rare....have you been to an active airforce base before?



For commercial jets, it is not as rare as you think.

The Virgin plane is an A320.

Virgin Atlantic doesn't operate the A320s, Virgin America does.

That was a beautiful video. Launching aircraft from parallel runways at the same time seems common. I saw it last time I was at ATL.
