Landing an Airplane on a Tiny Helipad on Top of a Dubai Hotel

posted by Jason Kottke   Mar 16, 2023

As I've discussed previously, the Piper Super Cub is an amazing short takeoff and landing airplane that can, under the right conditions, takeoff and land in as little as 10 or 20 feet of runway.

In a recent stunt for Red Bull, Luke Czepiela landed a Super Cub on an 88-foot-wide helipad located on the 56th story of the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai. Fantastic. And I love what he did right afterwards... (via digg)
