Landing small planes on no runways
« on: January 21, 2013, 04:06:02 PM »
You bird brains will love this one. Not sure what this little plane is but this pilot is equal parts insane and amazing.  He's landing planes on the sides of rivers, rocky terrain, and anything that ISN'T a proper runway.  It's insane.

It's taking off again from some of those places that startles me... I know those bush pilots can put down anywhere.

Looks like a Super Cub with "Tundra" tires.

That is the Alasken version of a Harley Davidson.

Skimming water helps decrease the landing distance.

Down here in my neck of the woods we call them Alaskan Pick Up Trucks.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.
