Video: Young Pilot Takes Off in Just Feet

Video: Young Pilot Takes Off in Just Feet

Pilots from around North America are gathering in Alaska to compete in the Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) competition at this weekend's Valdez Fly-In & Air Show. Typically, a small single-engine aircraft can use more than a 1,000 feet to make a normal take off and landing. Using a custom built Super Cub one competitor, 17-year-old Bobby Breeden of Virginia, can reportedly do both in only a few feet. Check out the video at Wired.com.
