Delta 95, ATL-NRT: 777 Takeoff & Emergency Return to the Airport

Matt Cochran is an aviation enthusiast and a good friend of mine. He is often at the airport as a spectator, and other times pursuing his passion of recording incoming and outgoing flights. He can name the make and model of all the aircraft just from a brief glimpse.

In 2015, Matt was recording a Delta 777 headed for Japan. As the plane completed taxi and began to accelerate, smoke appears from the bottom of the plane. After the plane took off, it immediately began having issues and showing signs of trouble. We later find out in the video that the smoke was actually the pilot dumping fuel in an attempt to circle back around for an emergency landing.

Matt has captured some incredible footage from the airport and his videos have been rebroadcast on several news stations including CNN.
