MD-87 tail strike (VMU test)

A short video from the flight test program for the MD-87. This is an excerpt from the tail strike (VMU) test card. The original video was produced by McDonald-Douglas Aircraft Company in 1985 and the video segments are titled "Tail Strike Test". There are dozens of take-offs in the original video and the cockpit audio of the flight crew indicates their main concern is to get the tail to impact the runway instead of importance on minimum unstick speed (VMU).
