*******www.aviationvids**** This Cri-Cri (a French "commercial home-built" aircraft) is TINY, but those two itsy-bitsy engines give it ample power to do some pretty impressive aerobatics. Amazing!

*******www.aviationvids**** This video shows what landing in Sulpher Creek is like in a small plane. "This is a 'One way in – One way out' strip. The approach is misleading. Once you are on short final, do not attempt a go around unless you are flying a very high performance aircraft. It's a great place to fly into and stay. Accessible only by air and trail.

*******www.aviationvids**** Amazing footage of a guy flying his RV-4 down a river at treetop height. The music is awesome, too! Many have inquired about the music in this fantastic video.

*******www.aviationvids**** This heart-breaking video shows the departure and subsequent crash of a Cessna 182 in a remote region of Colombia. The pilot was a director/volunteer for the Bogota Civil Air Patrol. They were transporting a patient on oxygen and the patient's mother to a hospital in Cali. The contributor notes: "The first words the pilot spoke at the beginning of the video instructs the passenger in the middle of the seat, next to the pilot, to 'Put your feet back and do not touch the pedals for nothing.' We do not yet know the cause of the accident and probably will never know." The pilot was the only person to survive, but later died in the hospital. The burning building at the end is an empty school.

*******www.aviationvids**** In most parts of the world, this type of stunt would result in enforcement action action against the pilot -- but Russian GA is different. The guy flying this Wilga is a 737 captain and the co-pilot is a Tupolev-154 captain -- with their wives (both flight attendants for the same airline) sitting in the backseat, enjoying the ride!

*******www.aviationvids**** Another great video from Dan Linebarger. Here is his commentary: "Attached is an approach into Big Creek Idaho (U60). Best approach into this strip (wind permitting) is from the North, landing on Runway 19. The runway is higher on both ends, low in the middle. Therefore, be prepared and set up to land on a surface that is sloping away from you on landing. Tie downs and closet toilet are on the south end. This was my first landing here and the approach should have been a bit higher. It's an easy walk to Big Creek Lodge. Great outfitter and good food. Aircraft is a 1959 C-172 180hp C/S prop. My co-Pilot and cameraman is Clyde Watson, also from Midland, TX.
