A fellow CFI sent me a real gem.Â Â I’d have to say this is the ultimate short field landing.Â It’s so short that half of it takes place on the water.
This wouldn’t be such a big deal except for the fact that the aircraft in question is not a sea plane.
You can do some pretty amazing things when you push a capable bush plane like theÂ Super CubÂ in this video clip to the edge of it’s performance envelope.
Of course, you can just as easily end up in a heap at the end of a gravel bar in some remote corner of the 49th state.Â SoÂ as theÂ Templar KnightÂ told Indiana Jones, “choose wisely”.
It does make for interesting viewing though, doesn’t it?Â I think I’ll show this clip to the next student who looks at an 1500 foot runway and claims they couldn’t possibly land there.
