Now That’s Flying!

Take a look at this video of an Aviat “Husky” airplane.

Talk about short takeoff and landing! This plane and pilot are pushing it to the limit. The Husky is designed to be a bush plane, capable of heading out to the hinterlands carrying all the gear you’ll need to enjoy the great outdoors where there are no runways or even roads. Hence the need for a rugged aircraft. They are popular the world over as evidenced by this video from Europe. I’d like to fly one of these in a more tranquil manner. Maybe this summer I’ll take a road trip to Afton, Wyoming where they’re built. Surely the people who create a plane like this would be fun to meet.
