Ex-Taiwan Air Force. Damn amazing recovery with only seconds to spare. He or jet manhandled it to the right and then level again.
To be fair he’s flying freight. They don’t let those cowboys near passenger flights until they’ve done the 18 month retraining in Australia.
Well it sure beats a Colt 45 to the temple I guess. This is pretty raw stuff.
Seems he had the intelligence to do better in life
Needed faith in himself if not in God
It’s pretty incredible he was able to start the plane and set up for take off and take the plane off safely and fly around for an hour
All without any training
Other than perhaps flight sim if that
Should have let them talk him down
Write a book
He not only flew, he did some serious aerial maneuvers.
Quite a story and they say this plane is not easy to fly single pilot
Needed a happy ending
