Coming out of Sangley Point for an alert launch to cover Yankee Station, 1969, P-3A BuNo 151363, T-56-10W's, Actual TOW round 132,000, this is on an airframe with a published MGTOW of 127,500. Wing stores you know, paraflares on four stations, full fuel, “C” ASW load just in case we found a sub on Yankee Station. We need every inch of that 8000' runway on a 95-degree day. At 95kts water injection fails, B pump goes out. We drop down to really low SHP, and are 6,000' feet down this runway at around 100 Kts with rotate in 130 range. We stagger into the air and it will not climb, we are headed straight into Manila Int'l, slowly accelerating at about 50’ in ground effect, we finally turn and get the flaps up. Water injection could be exciting.
