• Boeing B757 Smoke in the Cockpit on Takeoff

  • The aircraft was taking off from Runway 23 for a short night flight to Liege, Belgium; the First Officer was the handling pilot. The takeoff was uneventful until, at about 5-10 kt below V1, the captain thought he might have seen some smoke in the cockpit. At this time the first officer was unable to confirm the presence of smoke. At approximately 500 ft, the captain turned-up his reading light and called that he could see smoke and the first officer confirmed that he could smell it.
