Race Pilot Recovers From Accelerated Stall Less Than 100 Feet Off The Ground

Race pilot Matt Hall experienced an accelerated stall his aircraft less than 100 feet off the ground. Fortunately, he was able to bring the aircraft to wings level before bouncing off the water, and fully recovered to return to the airport.

This is an extreme example, but it goes to show how important it is to watch your airspeed and bank angle when you're in the traffic pattern.
