the non stabilized approach

Nice consistent radius and loss of altitude.  Looked like this could be a engine-out practice landing.

This is at my "work" runway, where I land 2 or 3 times a week. Its 1000 ft of turf with a pretty good uphill grade to start on the 36 end, but then flattens out to a more reasonable up hill grade for the rest of the length,  Coming in from the 18 end is  more challenging with very high power lines. so generally I stay inside the power lines and do a banking maneuver such as the one in the video, except I have to slip at the same time to get down after clearing some tall pines and a silo, then add in the down hill slope and it gets to be a lot of fun.

I don't have video, but I landed on one is Missouri that was fun. You flew downwind on one side, because they might shoot at you on the other. The runway was on the bend of a river. You lost sight of the runway on down wind and didn't see it again until short final. You had to drop down and follow the river to the end of the 1,500 foot runway, and the runway had a bend in the middle.
