GUMPS is: Gas, Undercarriage, Mixture, Prop, Seatbelts. This is a mnemonic for the before landing check: Fuel selector both, gear down/green light/in window&mirror, mixture rich, prop set for go-around, seatbelts and shoulder harnesses fastened.
Notice all of the snow on the ground! It was shot March 3rd. The ground is no longer snowy!
