Marc:  I have my doubts it's a true story for several reasons:  1)
Assymetric thrust would make the initial takeoff roll very difficult to
control.  Nosewheel steering can only do so much.  2)  It would make the
takeoff roll much longer.  Maybe too long as I doubt there's a chart done
during certification.  I think they are all done after V2  3)  I can't
imagine passengers riding the damn thing.  4)  I can't imagine a crew dumb
enough to try it.

I wonder if they did. . . . . . . . .jd
