Short short video of short takeoff and landing in gusty conditions

Jon Humberd expertly demonstrates a very short take-off and landing in his "Super 701" Zenith STOL on a very gusty day in Calhoun, Georgia, winning the STOL competition with a measured 41-foot take-off and a 40-foot landing (in winds gusting up to a reported 32 knots!)
October 16, 2021. "Super 701" Zenith STOL CH 701 powered by a 130-hp UL350iS engine with DUC propeller.
