exy I mean, like... I'm no physics major, but at least the props are just sucking up whatever comes up from the fore landing gear, yeah? Which is still pretty bad, I guess. I don't know, I guess I'd be fairly unhappy to ride in a plane that splattered my window with an opaque hunk of mud. I guess I'm in no position to rate videos. Please take a few stars and try to save a few for the lean years.
jimmicampkin In terms of 'Guaranteed Certain Death' flying in Russia comes just below leaping into a volcano.
Ursa_minor This is the sort of thing these planes are designed to withstand, which is incredible. Probably can do this a few more times before it needs a complete overhaul. Does anyone here remember the name of that book about the freelance ex-military Russian pilots doing crazy shit like this for a living? They'd arrange it so that they could buy an aircraft for 1 million, and get 2 million for the job - so when they completed the job they'd just leave the plane where it was because the job itself had basically destroyed the plane, and still make out with 1 million.
