    Default The most difficult landing in the world?

    Not for the faint-hearted - the flight into Chagual Airport in Peru, with an approach through a narrow mountain gorge. The pilot looks totally unfazed by it!

    Lovely remote scenery, too. Only 2 and a half minutes long.

    Just another day at the office judging from the pilot's demeanor, most impressive!

    Awesome video thank you x just what I needed after a miserably mundane day 😘..that is definitely skillful aviation. I don't have any skills per se but I've always wanted to learn to play the piano. Next year is the big five 0 ..maybe I'll go for it,what's the worst that could happen..? X

    Here's a real interesting flight landing on Microsoft Flight Simulator. There is a glitch in the map and the airport was placed at a much lower altitude than the land that surrounds it, so you have to fly into a deep chasm. Somebody who knows how to fly virtual planes well managed to get to the bottom of the chasm.

    Oh wow... that's the only piloting that I'd feel brave enough to do, in a simulator where you couldn't crash it for real! From what I've seen though, if you 'crash' a simulator, the noise and movement is very true to life and scary...

    Here's another, Lukla in Nepal. Unlike Chagual in Peru (which is kind of a fairly long highway after you get to land!), you barely have any time to stop at all.

    Yikes, you wouldn't want the brakes to fail!

    Ever since I watched a vid on the last-ever flight of Cyprus Airways after the company folded, which brought a lump to my throat as I flew with them many times, I've had aviation vids in my feed and some of them are really interesting. I watched one on why planes never fly over Tibet (apart from those going to Tibet of course) - apparently it's a very dangerous terrain to fly over.
