Considering the alternative, he did well. If you can walk away from it. . . .

Wonder why the video popped up now...it's been floating around on youtube for at least a year.

Cool piloting though.

THis feels incredibly set up. I could be wrong, good job if not.

If it was set up how did they get the a/c out of there?

Are they military guys? Kind of dressed that way. Not much general aviation over there but it looks like a pretty small aircraft for the military.

I suppose a restart could be tried but seeing the prop being still makes mechanical failure come to mind as they usually windmill. But, a prop can be stopped by getting close to the stall. And it might be one of those Rotax type of engines and I am not sure what happens with them.

Camera guy had confidence in his pilot who flew cool as cucumber.

Once they were safe, pilot added up possible expenses and got a little angry for a second.
