Video Showing Weight & Balance Plane…

Last Sunday I wrote a post about Weight and Balance in which I described a pretty scary situation where a plane, seemingly over loaded, took off, bounced on the runway, took off again and made what I thought was an impossible turn back to the runway and landed again.  This is just a quick video that was shot by my Garmin VIRB camera while I was preparing for that flight lesson.  Maybe if you have eagle eyes like my instructor, you can see if the plane is heavy or not.  The right side of the screen is pixelated due to privacy concerns for my instructor.  Sections of the video are sped up for brevity.  I’m not sure you can see much from this, but I thought it was kind of cool that I did get the plane taxing, taking off, landing and taxing back.
