Having watched jet departures from the open air decks at Logan airport since a boy, and more recently having done much travel, I have always noticced that when a jet revs up for take off, it seems to go to half-power for a second or two before proceeding to take-off power - as if it was a two step process. Is this half-step process with all engines, or spooling up engines individually, or simply a misperception on my part? Thanks for the info. I've been lurking in this group a great while and, as a "mere" lover of airplanes, enjoyed your discussions greatly.
