An 'engine failure test' is not a 'tail strike test'. Also failed to strike the ground on any of the high angle rotations. ClickbaitFTW.

I think you’ll find they are practicing engine out takeoffs, hence the tail strike skid, and low rate of climb after rotation. So it’s not “click bait”. Tail strike tests are for working out minimum V1 and rotation speeds. This is for working out procedures during engine failures after V1.

Looks like it. The most visible clue was the lack of efflux from the out engine on takeoff.
