Not quite as difficult as it may appear. Almost all pilots have encountered high winds straight down the runway when you could literally pick out a specific patch of it to set her down without moving an inch forward or back. 150's were great for that - light weight, slow stall speed.
It's a real deal ... saw it performed 2 years ago at EAA in Oshkosh ... want to say it was put on by two brothers who have an FBO in I think it was Bozeman, MT.
Gives new meaning to "dinghy" ... I didn't see the third person climbing on the front of the RV to help get the aircraft tires in the recesses on the roof in this video. think I have some pictures of that somewhere.
The Cole Brothers Air Show used to land a Cub on a platform mounted on the roof of a pickup back in the 50's.
I saw an act like that, Jeff, at a US bicentennial airshow at the Bellingham airport. IIRC, the Confederate Air Force (I think they changed their name some time later) did a show on that occasion as well.
Yep,it's for real,I was at the same airshow where this was filmed. It was a 'low budget' show,no Blue Angels or anyting like them,but still fun to watch.
Sadly,I have a picture of the plane that crashed later.We left early because of theh heat and I was shocked when I saw it on tv later that day.
? ? ?The landing of the plane on the RV is real.? I saw it done by the same folks at Oshkosh last summer.? Very impressive flying and driving, but it takes a lot of runway to get it coordinated properly.
