How can they do that?
Landing speed for that plane is probably 40mph. With a 25-30mph headwind and a quick flare at landing that's how they'd do it. And that particular plane has a huge wing area which helps as well. Forward flight speed - headwind equals ground speed.
I have to think that a very good headwind was involved.
It looked like a controlled fall.
Yeah, looked like he almost stalled it at the end.
Light weight and a huge wing surface.
