That’s One Way Of Doing It.

Bush pilots are incredible, fearless and sometimes do questionable things in the eyes of regular pilots. Take this video for example.

Although we’re pretty sure he knew what he was doing, some crazy calculations had to be made to make sure, you know, “lift” happened. Especially because his “buddy” was right there filming him go for an all or nothing takeoff. He was definitely aiming to get on YouTube or Instagram, not LiveLeak. 

What you’ll be seeing here is a Piper Cub, what exact version we’re not sure but probably a Legend, literally roll up to a cliff and go nose down off of it. For a second there, it’ll look like the guy and plane are goners, but apparently not.

Take a look for yourself. It’s really quite scary although Cubs are known for their ability to take off with minimal speed and headwind. Still, in your opinion, what would you say about it? Let us know in the Facebook comments.
