I love how not even a second after the engine fails, one guy instantly shouts "F*CK!" That was a surprisingly smooth landing, and fortunately there wasn't many cars on that road.

Any pictures of that home-built airplane? That could be pretty cool to see its design.

one thing that puzzles me is why he can restart the engine and that they keep running for about 10 secs, feels like a really wiered problem...

And holy crap, can you imagine what the shopkeeper must have thought when suddenly a freaking airplane zips pass his store? :O :O :O

I don't know where else to post this but over on the right hand side of the main page it says that since Nov. 6th 2008 I have spent more than 8 years on over 65,000 video views.

How is that even possible?

Makes you wonder how many replies you would get as a pilot if you advertised "FREE FLIGHT...Looking for someone to sit in while I practice landing after engine failure...bring your own nappy" :x
