I believe this is a triple definition!

'mimic' is the first definition.
(I've seen this before)

'to' is the second definition.
(thesaurus)

'make airport departure' is the third definition.
'take off' can be an answer for 'make' (thesaurus). I am unsure of the 'airport departure' bit.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for take off that I've seen before include "Remove clothes or become airborne", "Deduct", "fly", "Doff", "Burlesque".)
