What does hold short of runway on take off mean?
You might get receive an order to "Hold short of runway" before takeoff, but not during takeoff. That just means that the tower wants you to remain on the taxiway because another aircraft is taking off or landing and hasn't yet cleared the runway. Once you're "cleared for takeoff" you can taxi onto the runway and takeoff

O'Hare's longest runway is 13,000 feet.
This varies depending on many factors. The aircraft's weight being foremost, a heavily loaded 172 can require as much as 3 times the runway as a nearly empty one. Additionally… outside air temperature makes a big difference. On a hot day, you may need 200 to 500 feet more runway, and may not be able to take off at all if youre heavy. Field elevation plays a big role as well, some airports may be more than 5000 feet above sea level, this means less lift from your wings, and more runway. Weather can help or hurt you. A good stiff headwind might save you 200 or 300 feet from your takeoff roll, but its just as likely youll get a crosswind which may cost you. Pavement makes a huge difference, taking off from grass ususally takes at least 100 feet more runway. Bearing all that in mind, on a nice summer day, with just me in the plane & about a half-tank of gas, i can easily get off the ground in under 800 feet of runway, and if im trying, as little as 500.
Yes it can! Gary Whiteman former mustang pilot
Differs in every aircraft but mostly around 160kias.

A Heavy L1011 has just taken off from runway 36L and another L1011 is holding in position on runway 18L about 1200 feet away?
Three minutes from the time the first aircraft takes off.
It depends upon many factors; the weight of the aircraft, elevation of the airport, temperature, wind direction and speed to name a few.
The space shuttle has to start straight up, like a rocket.
The Harrier can take off vertically.
About a mile, yeah, a mile.
Any part of the aeroplane that is used to speed it up, slow it down, or manipulate it's shape in order to change it's velocity, altitude or direction is utilized in some fashi…on to allow the craft to leave the runway safely. So all the flaps and motors and shiny knobs and buttons and switches and levers must all be placed in their proper state. Or it will be bad.
Take a 75-300 ton plane, planes need to take off by running on a runway because to take off the plane needs preasure under it's wing so that the preasure can lift the plane up… in the sky. The runway has to be atleast 2KM long so that the plane has time to reach it's appropriate speed to take off. people have tried and tried but always failed trying to make a 70-300 ton plane fly just by using a (underbody thruster engine), only one plane succeeded the the or project and that plane was the "harier."
Yes, as the plane must accelerate from a stop to its takeoff airspeed.
\n. White runway Markings and yellow runway hold lines
Depends on the plane, the wind and how heavily loaded it is. Anything from less than 100 meters to several thousands.
