    It is possible to land in the sand?

    Everything is possible. Is it possible to be successful is the question.

      Of course, all you need are some gnarly tundra tires

              Thinking a bit about it, there is a case where planes regularly land on a sandy ground, and that would be Barra airport, in Northern Scotland IIRC. Regardless of the name, the airport's runways are dependent on the tide, as the runways most of the day are underwater, and as such obviously not made of concrete or other stuff, but just regular sand from the sea. Of course, the consistency of that sand is higher than, say, sand in the Sahara, but it's still sand nonetheless.

                ...and even scarier I'm also a flight instructor.

                on that note

                    YES and YES and YES

                    Served since the mid 50s initially by BEA Scottland with Dragon Rapides and later with DH114 Herons. Next stuff to show up were today's Twotters.

                      I think you were missing his point. You can try anything once but you might not still be alive to try it again. Unless I'm wrong too.

                        In the sand, yes. On the sand, well that's different
