Apparently In The Backcountry, You Can Pull Up To A Store In A Plane And Take The Road Out

Now, we might have made up that headline but from the looks of it, this might have been exactly what happened. Being outdoor fans, we’ve seen plenty of things that you could never get away within an urban setting such as pulling up to a store in a snowmobile. We’ve seen it. It happens all the time in snowy parts of the country.
Relating that to the video below, we’ve seen a lot of bush pilots do some incredible things. It isn’t uncommon to pull up to your own house in a Cub for example as long as you have a bit of room to land and take off. Especially in a Cub which only needs mere feet and some good headwind to do so.
So, here, we wouldn’t be surprised if the pilot landed in a parking lot needing to pick something up at a local store. Our proof? Well, you do see him pull out of a parking lot and quickly take off using the road next to the shopping strip.
We might be wrong, but it’d be cool if such a thing was part of these pilots’ everyday lives. Beats driving up in a car for sure.
