I thought 'youse' might appreciate this:
OMG- there had to be 1000 lbs of mud stuck to that bird- did not think he was going to make it!
That's exactly what I was thinking, too.
Did you catch all the work the pilot was doing with the nose wheel until the pressure wave built up under the wings?
Naw, he still had a good 30' of runway left!
I don't fly, but that looked like it took some skill.
Those silly soviets at it again!!!! It would impossible to compute your takeoff distance given the resistance of all that slush, and nothing short of a gamble knowing you could make it airborne before its game over (balls of steel)! I don't like to play test pilot, but enjoy the hell out of watching others try. Well played...
Not skill, stupidity and luck.
Mud boggin in an airplane...
Im a pilit...........my brother chops the wood and i pilit....from jerry clower
Try this for skill, luck...... and a big pair of brass ones.
Ought to make a good Nissan commercial.
there are old pilots or bold pilots... never and
I'm not sure which I would rather have: a gun stuck to my head; or forced to make that takeoff run. No sane pilot would attempt that voluntarily. That's playing Russian roulette with 5 loaded chambers.
You didn't actually believe that... did you?

But I maidja look!
That may have been faked, but this wasn't. This took some skill.
The #1 reason to like fixed gear.
Okay, I'm guessing the tires must be filled with helium.
