No Matter How...

...bad things seem, stay calm, fight through it, and find the solution.



This video proves that pretty much any problem has a solution, it is just up to you to find it any idjit with some time on his hands and a video editor can create a believable piece of fiction.

When you slow down the video and watch it closely, there are several "enhancements". The vid is a fake, the ability to persevere in the face of certain failure is not.

Amazing how the grass doesn't move from the prop blast during the "crash" landing...

A plane that's just lost its right wing would tend to roll to the RIGHT (not left, as shown) because the left side is still providing lift, and right is not. Mind you, I'm no aeronautical expert, and there may be factors I'm not aware of that explain this.(Forward speed too slow to generate lift, so gravity took over? He sure as hell picked up a lot of speed in that initial dive, though.)
Anyway, that was the first thing that screamed "not right" to me.

Yep, it's a fake but I did see someone land a R/C plane that had lost a wing, it's also on Youtube. If someone can do it with an R/C maybe someone could do it in a real situation. I'm just sayin...
