      I'm not a big simulator fan but this video gave me a good laugh. Like a carrier launch.

      I'm more impressed it managed to turn onto the runway without taking out any of the housing/buildings. Millimetres to spare perhaps ?

      Reminds me of a story told by a professor I had at Embry-Riddle many years ago. He flew C-130s in Southeast Asia and said he flew one into a jungle strip that they couldn't get it back out of. They had to helicopter a Seabee bulldozer in to clear enough trees to allow him to STOL takeoff to get out (even completely empty). That's a short strip!

      That's not an unbelievable takeoff, this one is.

      Great, but I'd like to see the landing that preceded it.
