This Virgin Atlantic 747 was seconds away from take off when ATC cancelled the clearance. A British Airways A321 was on approach and coming through thick fog when they were instructed to go around, it was probably less than a minute away from touch down.

The 747 had just about done his 30 second engine run up when ATC cancelled the take off clearance (1:18). The Jet had just released brakes and moved a very short distance before stopping abruptly.

Does this count as a take off roll, albeit a very short one? If not, why not? All comments appreciated.

After a short while to prepare again, the 747 advises ATC he's now ready to depart and a second take off clearance is given. This actual take off is shown from two cameras to illustrate the very low cloud ceiling.

If this one doesn't count, then how about this one:
