In 30 seconds, you would be well thru 400' in the 'dirty thirty'(737),
not to mention the fact that many airports now require vertical noise
abatement climbs at V2+10! (rediculously low speeds and deck angles to
please the nearby residents who were dumb enough to by a house beside
a major airport), So the "early" flap retraction was probably normal,
if not a bit late!.
