One Crazy and Dangerous

Airplane Landing

"A young British pilot flying a small turboprop aircraft in the wild jungles and mountains of Indonesia lands on an airstrip that most pilots would not dare. It took an indigenous tribe 14 years of construction to build this runway."

  1. What a tremendous piece of flying.Skills of the highest order and nerves of steel.Plus having the right aircraft for the task.The Pilatus Porter is one of the few aircraft capable of doing it.By the way,he's not British,he's a New Zealander!

    1. No kidding! That's funny about the New Zealander and not being British. The power of the media can change your ancestry!

    2. Had he been from Australia,his ancestors would have been convicts!

    3. Lol... No kidding! But, he could have helped them escape. :)

  2. There was a t.v. series couple year back upon these pilots, especially the British pilots who were trying to get into the commercial world but airlines in U.K. were not taking, so they went out to do this flying. Was a 6 part series.. great article great read Karlene
