I've mentioned the LET 410 Turbolet transport aircraft in a few previous posts, particularly its use as a bush aircraft in Africa, where its toughness and reliability have made it very popular. I've flown on a few of them, and whilst I can't say I enjoyed the experience, that wasn't because of the plane. Rather, it was because of the pilots, who often appeared to be refugees from Eastern European pilot zoos! Their knowledge, skills and technique frequently left a certain something to be desired . . .
When I came across this video of a LET 410 attempting to land, and (sort of) succeeding at last, I was irrepressibly reminded of African bush flying. I think I now know where at least some of those pilots learned to fly!
Oops . . . I think the technical term for that is "throwing the plane at the runway"!
