Pilot lands on iconic pier the same width as his plane

Red Bull Air Race pilot Łukasz Czepiela has landed a plane on the Sopot pier, an extremely narrow, short and wooden belt. The wingspan of the plane was 10.5 meters - exactly the same as the width of the pier measured between its barriers. It was a surprise for tourists strolling along the beach of the Polish Baltic city.
