Nice accomplishment, but... to quote an astute YouTube commenter "0 P": "Somewhere in Columbia a drug cartel is ordering a fleet"

Fairly confident Pilatus would not test there without a complete ground inspection.

My former husband was CDR at Flughafen Berlin-Tempelhof 1988-1991. The US Army had two Pilatus Porter PC-6s in the hanger. He said this plane flew like a kite and often just did not want to land. West Berlin was restricted airspace at the time, of course. And did not Mel Gibson "fly" one in Air America the plane landed up hill in the dirt? Great Swiss precision at work.

Nothing a little 100mph tape wouldn't fix well enough to get you someplace for a permanent repair.

Never heard of Woodbridge airfield to the north east of London

It is to the north-east of London, but that's a bit misleading! Woodbridge is actually just east of Ipswich in Suffolk, about 75 miles from London.
It was built by the RAF in the Second World War and saw use by the USAF up until the early 90s. It's still owned by the MoD and now used mainly for testing and training purposes.

I'd find a paved surface personally. FOD anyone?

Interesting. I was watching the intakes fort that very same thing, and it looks like they have built them high enough off the ground tp miss the FOD. But I have seen some amazing things sucked up on carrier decks....

WOW!!! Would love to test fly this baby!!!! Hey, if Cartel can buy them, so can Uncle....

The RFDS was launch partner with 4 for a start and they will be landing on dirt sometimes in outback Australia great addition to their many PC12s
