Don't know if you guys have seen this one.

That's pretty harrowing.

 

From the beginning of the video I just felt it looked (i) a hot day, (ii) a low powered airplane, (iii) a very old plane with few if any safety features, (iv) a huge risk flying over terrain (the trees) that provided no escape route opportunities for power/altitude loss.

 

To me it seemed like poor judgement and high risk taking by the pilot. I have limited experience and this is just an intuitive view of it. The pilot seemed a pretty old guy, so possibly quite a lot of hours and experience, but of course, this can cause complacency.

Saw this last year. Definitely an interesting and a harrowing find, and an interesting perspective on crashes. I've had my fair share of emergencies, but never a full on crash

His wheels were still on the ground after the strip ran out weren't they?

 

Seemed like it came up for a second and touched down again. Might have been better to hit that creek on the overrun after all.

Probably a slew of stuff one "should" have done in that situation that wasn't. All I can remember is that slash on the pilot's right cheek...

On February 3th 2013, a birthday plane flight ends in a crash landing.

Caught on video (from inside the Cessna 175), later you can hear the pilot say "I'm really sorry about your plane" :LMAO:

Glad no one got hurt, but I have to wonder why you'd attempt a landing in deep snow?

Maybe the pilot saw it done on "Flying wild Alaska".

Looking at his rate of descent at the end I wonder if he ever did this. He planted those wheels probably halfway up the struts in the snow! They are lucky that no one was badly hurt there!

Holy Crap, this video is insane. I am so glad no one got hurt. The video which op posted freaks me out (I saw that one a year ago), what is up with the IPAD on the yoke, and insanely long take off. Again, I am glad that everyone in both these videos are alright.

 

I am just confused on how was the pilot trying to land on snow with tires on? the plane had no skis....they are no way near an paved airstrip???

 

Scary stuff
