A couple months ago, in Short Field Landings and Learning Plateaus, I wrote about the frustrating experience of not being able to get my short field landing technique down.
If this video is any proof, I'm not the only one. The description says:
A wild ride in a Mooney as it does an approach into Whidbey Island in moderate to severe turbulence, landing high and fast on a short strip, and almost crashing.
But you probably just ought to watch for yourself...
I'll refrain from saying what I'd have done differently, since (a) it's always different when you're analyzing someone else's mistakes and (b) I don't have my license yet[*]. But I suspect that the pilots among you can guess what I might have written.
[*] if all goes well, that'll be false in less than a week.
