During take-off, the crew noticed that the aircraft was sluggish in its rotation and in its response to rudder deflections. A review of the take-off performance calculations showed that the take-off mass (TOM) of the aircraft used in the calculations was too low. The reason was that the zero fuel mass (ZFM) had been used by mistake rather than the TOM. The selected engine thrust, which is partially dependent on the TOM, was therefore insufficient for take-off. Preliminary information shows that the aircraft lifted off the ground on the last section of the runway.
