I had a landing just like this one time. I had a gps ground speed going down wind at 3K of 245 mph in my 1959 Cessna 172. I needed to get fuel and at the airport I turned base as I entered downwind. Still had a good mile final. I was running WOT on final and not moving, so I went down to about 25' above the corn field and got a little ground speed at WOT and landed just like the Cub in the video. That was the easy part, the hard part was getting the airplane off the runway and taxeing crosswind to the ramp behind the big hanger without putting the airplane on its top. Flew 11.5 hrs that day.
I watched my old flight instructor fly a Super Cub for 30 minutes and never crossed the end of the runway. Just throttled back a little and backed up to the takeoff end and go to WOT and fly back to the end of the runway again and again.Reminds me of a friend who did a restoration on an Aeronca C3. Headed out to Oshkosh, ended up with such a strong headwind he said that he was losing ground to pedestrians. Decided to land, as fuel was low, and as he was unsure about making the nearest field, decided to land on the large farm he had been hovering over for a half hour. Eased it down at almost full throttle, but found he was going backwards. He ended up in the lee side of a barn, got it on the ground, chopped power and hopped out to hold the plane. The farms owner, who had apparently been watching the whole thing with bemusement, hopped out, caught the other wing to help hold it, pulled the plane into shelter in the barn. The farmer thought that the event was the neatest thing, put him up for the evening, and even got him some fuel. Landing run was about a foot, he said.
