Video: A Landing (and Takeoff) Like You've Never Seen

Super Cub lands on windy mountain.

Here's a video that's just too good not to share. An intrepid aviator in his Super Cub lands atop a mountain in central Nevada, the oddly named Bunker Hill, at an altitude of around 11,000 feet.

The approach and landing are worth a watch, but the subsequent takeoff is absolutely spectacular. After stopping for a while on the chilly mountain (we know it must be cold because of the snow and the pilot's chuckle-worthy comment), our hero fires up his engine and does exactly what you'd expect.

We won't ruin the video for you by giving too much away, but trust us, it's well worth the 3 minutes and 22 seconds it takes to watch.
