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!
