Going in I was already expecting "too much braking" or "too much unexpected hole in field" and it appears that brakes won out.

He should have just gone into reverse.

If you're landing a taildragger and the tail pops up like that and stays up, should you add power and just go around?

Only if you lack skill. Pulling the yoke back should do the trick. I'm guessing by the cones that this was a landing competition and homeboy really wanted to sget the win. This actually happens quite a lot in these (forward to 1:45 for almost a carbon-copy of the video in TFA).

Well, you have to admit, that strategy does work to get the shortest landing.

Talk about competitive. I'd hate to see this guy in a paratrooper race to see who can get to the ground first.

Yup, the brakes work. Stay off them next time would you?

Oops.

OK if it's a short-landing competition, then I get it.

Why people would show off in $100,000 machines they buy with their own money escapes me.

Taildragger tail goes up - headwind stick back, strong tailwind stick forward.

It's not limited to aircraft.

Jesus, just pull up and stall it when the tail hits. It's not a 737.
