Airbus A380 landing with crosswinds in Iceland

by Volker Weber

Is that a Boeing 737 at 0:45 ?

[Thanks, Hajo]

I don't think I'd be on another plane after a landing like that. :)

Same as here, it seems.

Indeed. alt.movies.youtube.repost.repost. :-)

Thats surely a big airplane but what cross wind landing isn't exactly like that? You fly nose into the wind and just before touching down, give the rudder a kick to straighten up...text book stuff.

An aircraft carrier isn't that much different from a zodiak either. :-)

@ Volker, LOL!

I bet as a passenger on that you'd hardly notice unless you happened to be looking out the window. I can imagine anything much smaller would be a different story.

It is indeed a very old clip and if I recall correctly, the airbus travelled to Island for the very reason of existing cross-winds. The task was to safely land it in those cross winds.

Test was successful. So after seeing this, I think we can get trust into modern planes ... I will reboard in the futur.
