Crosswind Landing in Heavy Jets

Discussion in 'Multimedia' started by thecptn, Jun 30, 2006.

  1. sweet mother of god thats nuts... no wonder people clap!!!!
  2. The last one almost looks like it lands vertically like a Harrier.
  3. Amazing how a different perspective makes one really appreciate these guys.

    LOL love all the photographers busy snappin away there in one landing
  4. That looks crazy! Gotta give credit to the pilots tho. Not your eveyday landing....
  5. Magnificent control of the plane. Full credits to the pilots. :wink: :wink:
  6. Has Inci seen these??? He should find em somewhat interesting..
  7. Looks like first of type testing. They seem to have picked a runway in the middle of nowhere where they can afford to crash a plane and put some bloddy talented test pilots into them. Shows you how bloody strong they engineer the landing gear.
  8. Yeah, same plane each time.

    Looked to be a test field for unorthodox landings
  9. :lastyear:
    but good to see again

    Cheers :cool:
  10. lol, Not sure which is worse, the crosswind or trying to land a 777 in a sandpit, either way, looks like fun !! :grin: :grin:
