The airplane trundled down the taxiway. Ground radios “Hold short runway 4L”. A few minutes later ground radios “Cleared for takeoff”.
The plane moves to the end of the runway and lines up. They start down the runway picking up speed. They reach speed and rotate. “Climb to 3000, contact departure at 124.18, heading 270”.
The plane is on its way to the destination.
The wheels are back on the ground. They came off a while ago. The crew and passengers won’t know about it for a while. They won’t know until they attempt to land with no wheels.
