While landing that Cub on the beach was pretty neat, you really can put them nearly anywhere you have a little patch of open area. I used land and take off on a wet sand beach in California, in a 172 Skyhawk with 2 other people and camping/fishing gear.

Here's some more very precision flying that I think is really cool, originally posted by trollme: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWovoK4Ja_8&NR=1

the last stuff on the water is insanely dangerous.

The first video with the Viggen, the F-5C, and the F-18 was pretty damn awesome. The F-5 is the operational variant of the T-38 that I flew for 100 hours or so during primary flight training in the USAF. Those are just bad ass machines and the F-5 has about 50 percent more thrust available with leading edge slats....

I watched that for real in Switzerland years ago. Once a year the Swiss have military maneuvers. Swiss military you ask? They "fiercely defend their neutrality" as a Swiss soldier told me. Anyhow, to look DOWN on these jets in the valleys is really amazing. An unforgettable experience. I love Switzerland!

That skimming the water is one of the most Insane things Ive ever seen. I guess at that speed, it may not be much different than solid ground...as far as resistance / friction. Dunno..Im no pilot...Wicked to watch though.

Don't get me wrong,I love to fly. but this is what I call fun.
Not me in the video. Just one I like. Don't have any recorded to CD.
First Jump 1988. Never looked back. Still going strong. Besides its cheaper than owning an aircraft. The fun that can be had on the DZ is out of this world. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4d2eqL9uRI

Great videos guys, but the one I wish I could find was a music video made about 20 years ago of the Blue Angels with a Van Halin song playing.
