Dodgy landing attempt, very dodgy approach, super dodgy pilot ---> 0:48

I can tell from the video. I know because I've seen quite a few landings in my time.

If you looked at the bottom of the clips you would see some of them said "Weather Action at Wellington Int Airport NZ". Wellington our capital city is renown for its horrible windy weather. Shows how skilled you have to be just to fly plane to Wellington. lol

Sorry but someone has to do it. PHOTOSHOPED! I can tell by the pixels and having seen a good number of photoshops in my day. Anyway I was kinda expecting dodgy airplane landings to have alot fewer landings and maybe a crash or two.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH. SHUT UP! All you people keep saying "ooooh those guys are talented oooooh" shut up! we don't care if your dad's an airline pilot and therefore you think you know everything there is to know about planes! It was titled Dodgy Airplane Landings, not terrible pilots can't fly a god damned plane, nobody was saying they were bad pilots. so shut up already.

what are you guys talking about? Crosswind landings are fun! Aileron into the wind, opposite rudder...you fly straight as an arrow, but touch down on your wind-side wheels first...and it is probably simpler to do and control in a Cessna 172 or Piper Warrior than in a 737...

Um, my dad is a Delta pilot and those were actually pretty good for crosswind landings. Especially in commercial airplanes, crosswind landings are very hard to do, the pilots were able to pull them off with ease.

Someone on YouTube said that these were just flight landings being aborted. Anyhow they shat me up =/

Finally, I got a suggested link posted! As AKappy would say, I have attained a state of tumescence...

That is very impressive. Although I still would be pooting myself if I were a passenger... I hate flying.

Those pilots are very skilled.
I've been around skydiving for 10 years and I've seen my fair share of crosswind landings, but those were in a Super Otter. It's much more impressive with jets.
I think at least 4 of those were Boeing 777.

Most of those pilots were crabbing. Another technique one could employ would be a sideslip, wherein the plane is kept lined up straight down the run way, with one wing banked down in the direction of the wind. In that configuration you touch down on one wheel first. Probably a lot scarier for passengers, and more difficult in larger planes. But in a single engine cessna, side sliping done right gives a high level of control.
