Video of the Week: Whidbey Island Mooney Approach


Recommend a Video |VOTW Archive

Don’t try this one at home kids – midfield landing on a short strip in a Mooney, with no “out” due to the pilot’s long landing and tall trees all around the airport. It’s too bad we don’t have Smell-O-Vision yet, because you’d actually be able to smell the rubber burn when he locks the brakes to avoid a runway overrun.
