If you like STOL aircraft videos, go to the tube of you and search for the Valdez STOL fly in.
I grew up in Valdez...As I do like STOL aircraft videos I went there, so you didn't have to. Actually any aircraft videos float my boat but I lean towards military aircraft and those flying machines of an unusual nature. Especially if those aircraft are flown by talented pilots. The following video shows just how good these Alaskan bush pilots are at Short Take Offs and Landings.
As I got a little carried away yesterday with that double post, I found myself at a loss for what to post today. Freddy saved the day.

While I'm at it, I guess I need to give the MV-22 Osprey a shout out, seeing we're talking STOL. Also, I have a Marine buddy who flies those beasties. One of the thrills I had last summer was seeing two of them fly past Chez Sarge. I'm waiting for more. Patrick?
