    I'm Just Gonna Leave This Here

    I like the news reporting a lot better in New Zealand than I do in the US. Great video.

    He must've been in God's graces that day. That was a zero margin take-off if I ever saw one. I bet he'll never take off again without sticking the tanks. I agree about the matter-of-fact reporting. A refreshing break from all the sensationalized crap we get here.

    And they never once referred to him as "elderly!" I've heard the news here use that term for someone in their mid 60's, and it pisses me off.

    How did the prop continue to turn with no gas? How did the guy filming the landing know to to be there ?

    Still, even if the event was “enhanced”, he did a nice job.

    Yea, I wondered about the prop/gas but didn't think about the person videoing.

    I watched it again and bet that video was of him back taxing to take off.

    I hope someday to do something so amazing that a videographer says, “Bugger me, he made it!”
