This plane, built by a dad and son from Virginia, can land in five metres and take off and start flying with only three metres of room. It's part of a competition called STOL, short take-off and landing, that focuses on, well, how little runway you need to get a plane to start flying. In the video, the landing is decently cool but seeing a plane take off with so little room is amazing. Watch it! [Wired]

If we judged the new Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro like Olympic figure skaters, they'd no doubt earn 10s across the board for technical merit.
