Two of us once had a challenge to see if we could land across the width of either of the runways at BDN. We weren't allowed to try, but instead chalked lines 150ft apart (the width of the runways at BDN) on a local grass strip and managed to land and take off between the lines OK. Always thought it would have been fun to do this for real at BDN, replicating the old Irish joke about short runways that are VERY wide.

Saw a Super Cub at a display once, facing into quite a wind, I swear it was airborne without the wheels rolling at all.

The lovely little Cessna 152 doesn't do 130 knots.

Hmm, commented to a chap known to be 'doing' a rather young looking woman at the surf club ba similar.....his response was...

'If there's grass on the wicket, it's time to play cricket' ........

Once saw a Tiger Moth flying backwards at Leuchars Airshow.

Didn't see anything like it until Harrier came along.

Short Strip, in a valley, no go around......must not land land or fast!

It's always a problem when the 'gear not down' alarm is the same as the 'full ashtray' alarm.

Just enough power and forward stick to hold the tail wheel off the ground, then apply rudder. No, I have not done it but have a DVD of chaps in Alaska who do this sort of stuff all the time.

Many moons ago someone posted a whole series of unbelievable landing strips in PNG. Most of them were like big dippers.

I don't suppose anyone saved them?

Tony that was Luxembourgish for Awwww

I've flown an Otter on skis backwards, it was quite windy at the time. The passengers waiting on the ice strip were impressed.

Angels, the OzExpat and Chimbu Chuckles should have those, I'll see if I can rustle some up.
