Plane struggles to take off at airport

A dramatic video has emerged of a passenger aircraft struggling to take off at Frankfurt Airport in Germany. The video, captured on Tuesday by a student pilot, shows a Royal Air Maroc jet making its way down the runway attempting to take off. It appears that the pilot lifted the nose of the plane before it had caught enough speed which causes the tail of the aircraft to nearly touch the ground. ''Watch as they rotate at a very slow speed causing the aircraft's nose to lift off the ground but not generating enough lift to become fully airborne. Then shortly after stalling they continue to accelerate down the runway to rotate at a faster speed" the filmer wrote online. ''I have no idea why this happened, but some theories could include an incorrect flap setting, the setting of incorrect V speeds or an incorrect trim'', he added.
