Check out this pilot trying to land this jet.

My Brother and Jason and I have been flying our RC planes at the local school some of our landing's look like this LOL.

I can't even think how it would feel to be a passenger on a flight like this WOW pretty crazy

Ha, ha. That's just craziness. I can't imagine even trying the landing when you're coming in that sideways.

Yeah that's gnarly. I talked with a pilot buddy of mine and this is not as uncommon as you would think apparently. I YouTubed "crosswind landings" and you see all kinds of Boeing test flights. I guess they're made to handle that kind of thing.

But yes, I would absolutely be pooing myself if I were on one of those planes!!

Ben- That attempted landing was Crap. The title saying "Amazing pilot" was written by someone who knows nothing about flying commercial airliners.

^^^^^ yeah.
Boeing Flight Test pilots are definitely worth their pay. I've seen a few first hand in Central WA. CRAZY!

wow, really makes you appreciate what those can go through.

on the last 2 it looked like the wheels were slanted to favor the landing. do they do that? or was it a trick of the light?

The C5 has wheels that will move to allow it to land straight in a crosswind. They found that since it was such a big aircraft though, it would take a small hurricane to affect it. I believe the B52 also had the same ability.

Those test boys do make their money. I have a commercial license and I would be crappin' my pants on that last landing. Especially with that big of an aircraft. You should see the final brake test they did before certifying the 777.

Fully loaded aborted takeoff right before they hit the limit for a safe abort. They applied full brakes and smoked em. Started the tires on fire and they had to sit on the runway for 5 minutes like that to simulate the time it would take for the fire team to show up. It was freaky as heck!

The Flight Test Wheel/Tire shop is just down from my office. You should see what brakes look like froze and what some locked brake landings do to tires.
