Dan sent me a couple of companion pieces to yesterday’s entry.Â Both are cockpit-based videos of a tailwheel airplane landing on a gravel bar.
In the first clip, our intrepid pilot uses the “waterski” arrival, touching down with the main wheels on the surface of the river and sliding right up onto the gravel bar.
In the second, he drops in from above some trees and lands on a short, curving spit of land.
I’m not sure what kind of airplane this is.Â It’s got a hinged top cowl, so I assume it’s a Super Cub or derivative?
As usual, don’t try this at home.
