Same should go for their passengers! :)

Not for the faint of heart: :shock: Simonds strip in the Idaho backcountry -- 900 ft long at 5243 ft elevation

Maybe not as crazy as the one in Johan's video, but still, wow, what an approach!

If anyone else is curious about where the above is, it's in the YouTube description and here's a shortcut: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queenstown_Airport. Looks like runway 05.

Here are the charts: http://www.aip.net.nz/NavWalk.aspx?section=CHARTS&tree=Queenstown.

That was pretty much what I experienced looking at it as well. The edge right there at the left side is a bit scary as well. :shock:

Queensland Airport is indeed in FG, although the terrain is still quite basic. ( I believe it's not received a Regional Materials shader fix yet..) I climbed up the backside of Deer Park Mountain with the Yamaha- YG-1 a week or so back and even the high peaks surrounding the lake had generic agricultural materials on them, even on the steepest and highest ones. Doesn't make the Southern Alps in FG look all that realistic.

Wow! That crop dusting field! :shock:

The aircraft (Pacific Aerospace PAC-750 X-Stol) seem to have quite nice STOL performance:

That's not for the faint of heart. 8)

There is one crop duster in FlightGear, the PZL-Mielec M-18 Dromader (wiki, forum). :wink:

No there's two cropdusters,the PLZ Dromader and the Grumman Ag-Cat. Not to mention the Huey which has spray booms.

Cropdusters and Bushplanes :D :D

To my big surprise there is a turboprop version of the Ag-Cat. Somehow that looks plain wrong:
