Christ that guy is hyper. I'd almost be nervous. Is he on cocaine?

@Lydiot Yeah, I know what you are talking about, but I got used to him pretty quickly and he has some truly amazing videos.

Pointing the lift vector mostly to the left sure help loosing altitude. ;)

F16 can beat that rate of descent!
30secs into F16 video and HUD altimeter records height lost as around 3000'
Making a rate of descent of 6000 feet per minute!
HUD airspeed settles around 110 knots stick held fully back to maintain F16 fully stalled.

2nd Video Invader Engine Failure makes rapid descent to land essential. :wink:

It hardly surprises me that an F16 beats a Cessna 172 regarding absolutely anything!

Google "falling leaf stall" for an alternative (and exciting ! ) steep descent method.
e.g. http://www.boldmethod.com/learn-to-fly/ ... eaf-stall/ , including a video.

No wonder the site is called "Boldmethod". ;)

An effective way to demonstrate how effective rudders are for controlling roll at high alphas. And a bit of an Aha! moment when I get reminded about it and realize why the "A" PARE is "Aileron neutral"

Edit: Regarding the falling leaf stall see also this post: Re: Interesting Videos

One thing about emergency spiral descents to landing is that your nose is pointed away from the landing point part of the time.Another way is S turns to descend,a little slower, but keep you nose within 90 deg. of the runway in case you find you are to low.

:) That's the correct way to level the wings in a stall.
