Man lands on a cargo container ship

Ok, it's technically Off Field, though it was deliberate:

I'm not 100% on this, but did he bend his left gear leg? Look at the angle at 1:05, and again at 1:17, then at 1:21

I suspect he damaged his plane on landing, and elected to fly it off the ship anyway. If so... *tsk tsk*

More footage here:

And yes, it *definitely* looks like he bent his left gear leg. Freeze frame around 4:41.

Pretty stupid stunt if you ask me. But maybe it was international waters, so anything goes? ;)

Definitely a dumb a$$ stunt. As a guy who flew off ships for 14 months, in my opinion, he did it all wrong. If you are going to be a dumb a$$, you should at least try to be the smartest Dumb a$$ you can be.
