Cessna 182 and Costa Rican strip

Recommended Posts

I came across this vid of a C182 landing on a strip in Costa Rica.  I found it interesting.  See also the gator at 1:28, and -- although it may be an optical illusion, people are standing casually near the landing aircraft at 3:35:

Definitely a Gator there!  I was told when I was flying out of West Palm Beach airport on my way to Dallas that sometimes gators would hold departing traffic on the runway...

Skills without a doubt.

However, that is not a "gator".  It's a caiman. 
Gators only exist in the U.S. and China.

 


Thank you.

Hi Folks,

This guy was active over on the A2A forums for a bit - someone even painted his paint on the A2A model if I recall correctly - he's since moved to the Pacific Northwest and films there regularly... All your typical bush stuff -  off airport landings with water assisted braking - truly amazing... Check his channel - seriously... Now if we could only get A2A to rig out their Skylane as a bush plane...

Oh - he has a much nicer paint job on the plane now as well...

Regards,
Scott
