    Are'nt them tundra tires somethin!!!

    I had an aerobatic instructor who taught me some basic recovery skills and rolls and such who flies float planes in Alaska in the summers. I would fly Any bloody where with that man. I'd love to be in one of them flights in the video. I wouldn't be able to control myself. Could never find another ride like it I bet.
