TBM to Saba

Hello :)
Today I present to you the Saba Airport adventure. Known as one of the most dangerous airport and one with a very short runway.
If you overrun the runway you fall from a cliff into the ocean. But I didn’t overrun the runway
I stalled and crashed into the mountain😌. My second attempt was better though. Surviving the whole thing.
Anyway, I flew this with the TBM as a Cessna was too slow for me tbh.
Enjoy the pics :)

In all seriousness, these are great! Saba is a hard landing, and it looks like you nailed the crash! And the last photo looks real!

Happy birthday to you @Butter_Boi
Also, I remember flying to lukla when I first joined IF in an a318 in casual and I crashed into the wall. I got so mad I didn’t want to try again, I flew from OMDB.
