Good thing that he didn't lose an engine. That was sooo illegal.

As the saying goes...The most useless thing to a pilot is the runway behind him .....:rolleyes:

Wow! Thats some pucker factor for you for sure! I've flown some little 152's on hot days in Colorado and gotten a little white knuckled but this one is WAY beyond that!! :shocked: :shocked: I think if I was piloting that thing they'd have to peal my hands off the controls after landing and then I'd need to go change my drawers.

Last Friday I had the opportunity to fly right seat on a trip in a Cheyenne 4...very fast turbo prop airplane. We were departing Rock Hill, SC and the south 1/2 of the runway was NOTAM'd out due to re-stripping. I knew we had enough field for take-off (about 2500) but it is a very weird feeling seeing a truck and workers coming at you waiting for the plane wanting to fly.
