All things being equal, we should be able to land most GA planes in a shorter distance than needed for take-off in the same conditions, right? That's obviously not the case for this Yamaha-powered Just Aircraft Highlander. Taped for a STOL competition, this footage shows the pilot manages to unstick in only six feet! There was no chance he was ever going to match that on landing, but even so getting it stopped in only 25 is still remarkable. There's a fair bit of preamble footage, so if you want to jump straight to the action, it starts around the 4.00 minute mark.
