    This type of landings are more common than you think. Only a handful were a bit extreme.

    ^^ It`s called "delete post" you little attention whore >P

    But yeah, crosswind landings are a bitch. And they STILL expect you to land on the centerline...

    Btw, girlsn0tgrey, you can delete your double post with the button under your profile picture next to it.

    Also, typing in alternating capital and lowercase letters is NOT COOL.

    Crosswind landings are a bitch. Makes me wanna do loops in closed traffic until the wind dies down.

    Those boeing 777s were test landings, i have aerspace and aviation in school and we jsut watched a documentary on it. If you ever see 777 painted on the side, its the company test flight. But man those were scary

    lol no worse than me trying to land a helicopter on GTA IV!!!!

    Still, it was good of the pilots to actually land them straight in the end.

    Wouldn`t want to be in any of them though.

    Most of these are in Brazil (even the Lisbon one, they speak Portuguese down there) and are training/test flights at a remote airport known for its cross winds. Not only do they test the aircraft but the info from the black boxes is loaded into the aircraft simulators so pilots can train for cross winds without having to go through that.

    Whoever posted this vid knows nothing about aviation...crosswind landings are standard and most of these were done by the book

    didn`t finish cus it wasn`t worth it, but it seems the pilots that aborted landing made a good call, and those that pulled it off did a hell of a job considering. Still not afraid to fly.

    Better in the air with the wind than on the ground with the drunks.
