Flight Chops: What It’s Like to Land a DC-3

The YouTube aviation star took on a legendary plane and had a tense encounter with a J-3 Cub.

If you're unfamiliar with the YouTube aviation star known as Flight Chops, you have a lot of homework to do. Fortunately, we're such big fans of pilot Steve Thorne's work (and chops) that we're proud to be sharing some of his greatest hits on our website, so you won't have to go far to catch up on the adventures of the self-professed "least cocky pilot on the internet."

In the meantime, there's no better way to get to know Flight Chops, whose YouTube channel has amassed over 14 million views, than with his latest "ride-along" flying video that is racking up clicks. This time out, Chops was able to live out the dream of any pilot by landing a DC-3. Needless to say, this ever-improving pilot learned a few important lessons that day.
