Crazy pilot in race to the ground

(3:50) After the last skydiver dropped, the pilot dives his plane in a tense race to the ground. Next video is the view from the airfield.

Not too impressed. First, the plane has it's own propulsion so it can drop faster than gravity acting on it alone. Second, the divers have parachutes that deploy to purposely slow them down.

@cengland0: you're an idiot, that was crazy mad piloting skills, and the most complex thing you've ever accomplished is depressing CNTRL ALT and DEL keys simultaneously. Go slap yourself now.

Why would I need to press CNTRL ALT and DEL keys simultaneously? That's only for stupid people that buy the Microsoft Windows operating systems. As for me, I'm smart enough to know that OSX, Linux, Solaris, or Unix is the best way to go. Regarding the piloting skills, that's nothing special except for the hard turn he takes just before landing. He could have eased up on that much earlier in his flight and got a better direct landing instead of the harsh angle he elected to use. If you've ever seen real flying like the Blue Angels, you'd realize this pilot is okay but nothing to write home about.

that pilot is epic. The last 20 seconds before landing require immense skill. Incredibly dangerous way to land, requires huge precision
