Adrenaline is a drug that will kill you, and kill you spectacularly.

I thought I was gonna puke watching the pilot's eye view.... Haven't decided if that's nerves of steel or just a youngster that hasn't yet figured out the concept of his own mortality. I wonder how many of these guys just don't show up back and base and are found years or decades later in one of those ravines (or never found at all).

I mean, I'm impressed with the skill it takes to perform that stuff, but on the other hand, I know that I've had days where I was slightly off, and didn't really realize it until I did a bit of a clunker of a landing. If you had one of those days where your timing was off by half a second when you were doing one of those take-offs that's pretty much be game over.
