A Question for the Airline Pilots
Or anybody in the know I guess.
I recently did a bit of travel and a question occurred to me that I’ve had plenty of times before, but I always forget once I’m done with my traveling.
My most recent trip had 4 legs each way so I guess that helped me to remember to ask. On our takeoff, we would pick up this swaying side to side motion. Sometimes more noticeable than others but usually there. And if my memory serves me, this was just while still on the runway and goes away once all the wheels were off the ground.
I’d love to know what causes that. It seems with all that thrust pointed straight ahead, we wouldn’t be moving sideways so much.
