Do you know that moment when you want to climb a mountain, but you don’t have any gear except the Piper Super Cub in your backyard? Well, these guys do.
Two Swiss pilots decided it would be a great idea to fly their Piper Super Cub to the summit of Europes highest Mountain, Mt. Blanc, in the French Alps. Without permission.
They flew their plane up to 4450m and landed close to the summit with the plan to climb the mountain from there. Well, they were caught and were forced to depart again. Both French and Swiss authorities opened an investigation against both pilots.
I mean, it’s quite impressive to manage landing in such a place. But why?
