Three-point landing

Recommended Posts

Silberpfeil    86
Not quite sure of the pre-video circumstances caught by the security camera, but it looks like the Skyhawk lost power during take-off and collided with the tree just as it was beginning to stall out.  The impact causes the tree to break, cushioning the aircraft into an upright landing in the parking lot, and the pilot sustains no injuries!

Brings to mind the old adage:  "A good landing is one you walk away from, and a great landing is one where the airplane can be used again"!
