Full throttle and downhill
by Aviationer || Category: Airplanes, Amazing stuff
I always thought that downhill was for bikes, maybe a buggy could do that as well. These two guys decided to do that…with an airplane. In fact, they get the Highlander, an amateur-built STOL aircraft that can actually land in less than 150 feet (50 meters) and in steep runways up to 40º. Amazing.
There’s no doubt they from USA, not only for the accent, but also for the country-like music they listen to when flying.
This vid has been recorded from another hill, from the outside, so you can appreciate much better the acrobatics.
This vid instead, show you the acrobatics onboard the airplane.
