Cool

Yes it is possible if all the right conditions existed. There are planes that can actually go backwards if the wind they are flying into is moving faster then there airspeed.

Yes, it's doable! This video is actually from a well known pilot from Nevada I think, he is known for flying and landing his super cub on mountains and other odd places.
