Dead Stick Takeoff :: Don't Try This at Home
Really, I don't care
if you try it at home or not. But, if you DO try it at home, PLEASE video
This is a completely unsolicited plug for a guy I've never met. I
don't know his name, where he lives, or what he had for breakfast this morning.
All I know is that the videos he has posted on YouTube are some of my
favorites. Apparently, they've become so many people's favorites that he has
decided to sell a 45 minute DVD featuring his acts of aeronautical aptitude.
Go buy a video so this guy can buy more gas and make more videos.

Steve Henry had his Highlander "Yee Haw" at the ultralight strip at
AirVenture 2010. It was cool to watch him stopped in the taxi lineup
with the tail up. Brakes throttle and elevator. At the end of the line
he would execute a slow 180 taxi turn tail up, and then commence the
takeoff. Amazing to say the least.
