Regarding successful landings....
Have you ever landed on tundra in Greenland?
You ever chase cows off the runway before take off? Or land just 50 yards beyond a herd of zebra 40 minutes after sunset, in the dark?
In the summer of 2015 I went on a cruise/workshop with Muench Workshops to Scoresby Sound, and we were to fly from Reykjavik Iceland to Constable Point Greenland along the inlet to Scoresby Sound where we were to pick up the sailboat that would take us on throughout Scoresby for a week. But the inlet was packed with ice, so that the boat could not meet us at the airport, but about 15 minutes away across the peninsula by air. So after we landed at Costable Point airport, we immediately boarded a twin engine turbo prop plane built for tundra landings.
Shortly after take off, the pilot keyed the mike to the passenger compartment, and said " You probably have not landed this way before on tundra - it is not remotely like landing on tarmac - NOT TO WORRY -- we do this all the time, but be aware, we may/ almost certainly WILL, bounce a couple times!!"
And we did, smooth glide down to earth, and then bounce up airborne a couple times before finally coming to rest quite safely on soft, spongy wet tundra..... Quite an experience.
At least there was no wrecked aircraft at the end of the runway like there was in Costa Rica at a small strip along the coast , many years ago when I went there to go SCUBA diving.
Here we are unloading - notice the rifles.
I am STILL waiting for the next episode in "The Last Motorcycle on Earth" - Not sure why there is a delay, or if more episodes will ever appear now... 😟
