Boeing 737-76N, 5N-MJI

Summary:

The crew had programmed the aircraft’s Flight Management Computer (FMC) for a maximum thrust takeoff from Runway 24 at SouthendAirport. As the aircraft taxied out, ATC changed the runway in use to Runway 06. The FMC was re-programmed but an incorrect ‘assumed’ temperature was entered, resulting in too great a thrust reduction for the runway length available. Although the aircraft became airborne before the end of the runway, had the takeoff been rejected just before V1 there would have been insufficient runway remaining within which to stop.
