Back in the 1950's we use to do that all the time. A DC-7 would take off on 22L and as soon as it passed the rotation point a Connie would start its roll on 31R. They knew how to move traffic in those days.

You seem to have missed the entire point of this story. Simultaneous takeoffs on parallel runways probably happen thousands of times a day around the world. That wasn't the point. They were highlighting the fact that those two rival airlines coordinated a symbolic simultaneous departure to highlight the full reopening of those routes that had been so dramatically curtailed over the last 20 months. It was a deliberate PR event, hence the reason the media covered it.

That was at KMDW back in the 50's.

Nothing rare about this at all... not even at heathrow, or any other major airport with parallel runways. This is a non-event.

Of course as usual the news media has to make it a rare event. It sells.

International borders reopening IS rare, hence the historic nature of the takeoff

lol.... you act like ours has been closed - when it has never been as wide open since the dawn of the jet age!

Not rare, perhaps, but neat to watch two big jets rolling together. Even if they are hundreds of feet apart!
