Pilot Lands Bush Plane Like a Helicopter

A fierce headwind allows this bush pilot to maintain lift as the airplane throttled down and comes to a stop on the ground.

Landing was hard enough to get comfortable with, without this kind of headwinds. Impressive skill, and nerves. I'd of been too worried the wind would stop and just drop me to let myself go slow enough to still try to land regardless.

it's an Alaska super cub 10 .. light weight plane with big wings .. and the headwind #2 was actually helping him
but i'm not arguing his skill :)
