In an incredible video showing immense skill on the behalf of the pilot, check out this video of a little plane landing and doing three full ‘powerslide’ donuts before taking off again.

The Piper Super Cub was being flown by then 21-year-old take off and landing pilot, Bobby Breeden in Nikiski, Alaska.

The plane circles the person filming – making it unsurprising that at his young age, Breeden had already won four short take off and landing competitions.

It makes the remote location even more accessible to the young pilot.

It fared a lot better than this plane that was frozen to the runway at a German airport.

“Breeden is able to land or take off from places in his certificated airplane that others wouldn’t dare, including mountains, glaciers and riverbeds,” the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association said.
