Taildragger Mishaps Video

Here’s a pretty interesting video about something you never want to experience in your taildragger – a ground loop. The video’s long at almost 14 minutes but I liked it and thought you might too. You won’t need me or anybody else to interpret the message for you but hey, my fingers are already on the keyboard!

Synopsis of 14 minute video:

#1 If you want to relax flying your taildragger, don’t do it setting up for your landing and don’t even think about doing it on roll out.

#2 Best to be at the top of your game, picking your crosswinds wisely – or fly a nosedragger!

    Awesome. Several ponds of MALE pride where sacrificed in the making of this film. LOL

    Awesome find. Thank you! Hope to avoid one of those…specially from one of the country roads we often land on (with ditches on either side). Would be a costly mistake! I got a kick out of the commentator at the end.
