Video of the Week: Alaskan Bush Pilots’ Amazing STOLs


Recommend a Video |VOTW Archive

"That runway’s too short for anything to take off from!" — we’ve all heard the sentence, and maybe a few of us have even said it, but from now on, we’ll have to make a slight revision.  The next time you hear someone talking about a short take-off, feel free to add, "Except, of course, for those Alaskan bush pilots doing STOLs in that video I saw on AVweb."  (Just be careful what tone you use if you’re talking to the PIC, O.K.?)

Thanks to AVweb reader Ronnie Hughan for sending us the original video clip and YouTube user dynmicpara for the YouTube link:
