Once they were airborne but still not climbing fast enough, I kept thinking, "Sometime in the next three minutes, throw about 100 lbs of stuff out the window and you'll make it." That's all it would have taken, two suitcases out the door.
Stupid pilot. Should have aborted after the first 12,000 feet of TO roll.
If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.
