It’s always amazing watching humans piloting planes and overcoming suboptimal weather conditions to safely land them.
This time, although the pilot was clearly on the ground with a remote control in hand, a small plane by plane standards but a large plane by model/RC plane standards was landed successfully.
You can see the plane wobbling back and forth on its initial approach before going straight up in the air in bizarre fashion. Then, suspended in midair and making weed whacker noises, the plane’s slow descent begins.
The person piloting it from the ground didn’t blink an eye and skillfully defeated the wind.
Now, a lot of people on the internet appear to think that there was a human inside the cockpit of this plane.
While that is clearly not the case, it’s still impressive that this plane didn’t end up destroyed.
