This is a shout out for a brilliant short video from a cockpit camera of two young pilots going from 1100 feet to a tricky forced landing in a light aircraft two weeks ago in Queensland.

To see the video and read about the context spend three minutes here on the ABC News site.

They do everything right.

One thought on “Cockpit Video of QLD crash landing one for text books

  1. Jason Harmon

    I think it may be 1100ft, 11000 ft they would have been gliding for nearly half an hour!

    (Yep. What were my fingers thinking! The ABC report correctly says 1100 feet.)
