Take off and landing within a minute: Dash-7

In this video showing a Wideroe Dash-7 at Floroe airport in Western Norway, we are being shown the great characteristics of a magnificent aircraft. This four engine, STOL aircraft was a common sight in small communities in Norway in the eighties. Nowadays it can be seen in a similar role over the fjords and mountains of Greenland, although Air Greenland has started to replace some of them with the Dash-8-100.

Enjoy this video, where a Dash-7 takes off and lands at the same airport, within a minute! The runway is similar to most Norwegian local airports, only about 2,600-3,000 feet surrounded by mountainous terrain. Amazing!
