F-35A: Yes; $a=.8\ m/s^2$ A-380: No
We see if there is enough force to raise the F-35A: $F_g=(18,000)(9.81)=177 \ kN$ This is less than the engine's force, so we find: $a = \frac{191,000-177,000}{18,000}=.8 \ m/s^2$ We see if there is enough force to raise the A-380: $F_g=(560,000)(9.81)=5,493 \ kN$ There is not enough force, for this is greater than the thrust of the engine.
