Those crazy bush pilots and their tail draggers. Notice his propeller never moves through the whole thing.

BTW I heard this manuever would soon be part of the Private Pilot Test Standards. :D



Ahh! This is how I change this!
I like this one too:


Landing up hill, then doing a 180 and taking off downhill, all with the tail held off the ground.

That guy has some balls.

Is that how the FAA defines "careless/reckless"?
i don't see that as careless or reckless... it seemed like he had everything in control. he is a bush pilot, and that was what was available to him for TO.there is no FAA regulation saying you must take off with the engine running :D
