This is What It’s Like to Land a Plane in the Idaho Wilderness (WATCH)
This is as close as most of us will get to being an eagle. A brand new video has been shared that shows exactly what it's like to land a plane in the remote Idaho wilderness.
The view of that beautiful Idaho lake is worth it.
YouTube channel idahobackcountryflying shared this exciting (and more than a little terrifying) video of a recent flight into the Idaho woods. It's at about the 1:49 mark that things get good.
It's technically a landing strip, but truly resembles an old dirt road more than a runway. There's not much room for error with trees on both sides of the landing area. A strong crosswind is not your friend in this scenario.
If you thought the landing was cool, check out the takeoff at the 3:46 mark. The view of that beautiful Idaho lake is worth it.
There's more where this came from. They have other aerial Idaho adventures that they share on their channel. Nice.
