Here's a video explaining it : [link]
On a serious note though :D [link]
The TIE just lifts from the ground. I don't know how canon it is, but I guess all Star Wars fighters can just lift up from the ground and fly away !

yes, i notice that they just lift from the ground, i was hoping that you tie had same kind of turbine or something, since Lucas just do "magic" ;)
Perhaps they all have some huge magnet under the ship that we don't see :D

Well, my TIEs are a bit newer, so they would surely have more advanced tech for hovering etc. Looking at how the small Snowspeeder lifts from the ground and dlies away, I guess that it's a cheap and widely known technology, even for the Empire :D

I always thought TIEs were suspended in air by catwalks in the hanger.

Yep they were, but sometimes they landed and even stopped mid-air, so they must have some kind of anti-grav technology.

I never said they didn't have anti-grav technology in them, in fact I believe that they do. I just always thought they couldn't land on their panels because they would bend or break and had to land on "racks" when they did land.

Yeah the panels would probably be a problem :D I guess there's no official stance on this, because in extended universe they did land that way, but there's no such indication in the movies. I think no one from the original trilogy team even thought about it :)
