This Boeing 737 lost some fuel during its departure at Düsseldorf this week. Every airplane has fuel overflow vents but I have only filmed three planes losing fuel through the overflow vents within the past 15 years. It` s kinda rare to see this happen. These vents are quite important to make sure the pressure inside the fuel tanks doesn` t get too high. Especialy when the wings bend during takeoff it might happen that the fuel doesn` t have enaugh space anymore inside the wings. Too avoid high pressure inside the wings the fuel has a possibitly to leave the wings via the fuel overflow vents which is clearly visible in this video.

I don` t know the destination of this Boeing 737 and I can` t tell you why the fuel tanks were filled near its limit. As far as I know the longest Boeing 737 flight of Tuijet from Düsseldorf is Sal (Cabo Verde)

Thanks for watching, new videos every tuesday and friday.
