While the pilot was crabbing the passengers were chitin their pants.

Cripes. Man. I already adore flying, and then I get to watch this.

Jeeez.

The captain was Brenda Wassink.

Reminds me of a quote from the movie Wonder Woman: "I am both frightened and aroused." I was going to bellyache about the video being too long but it starts right when the wind is reported at 40 knots which I suppose is needed for credibility.

FYI, it's optimal to land and takeoff into a head wind. This is the best case scenario-but not always possible. Most airports have multiple runways positioned to accommodate this. The airport I fly out of was built by the Army Air Corps to train pilots to land and takeoff in crosswinds. More than once I have briefed passengers that although we may not be lined up with the runway centerline on final, I am going to straighten her out upon landing. It's a balance of power, rudder, ailerons, and elevator. Landing is the most technical part of flying.

Slight Cecil;
To piggyback the above, though upwind catapult shots are stiff........ same launches downwind are absolutely brutal.
The Aircraft Carrier has to really crank up the catapult steam to toss say a 60,000 pound aircraft off the pointy end when traveling downwind.


Others can correct me but I believe the C-5 galaxy had pivoting landing gear to assist in cross wind landings.

Indeed it do. But I hadn't thought about allowing them to castor for landing - thought it was more for efficient stowage ala the old Corsair 90 degree retracts.

I don't know about the C5 but it makes sense. An old squadron commander of mine was an ex B52 pilot and they have a dial in the cockpit to swivel the landing gear for lineup. At Barksdale I would sometimes see them coming in sideways.

I have seen B-52s at BAFB landing with swiveled gear. My parents grew up north of Shreveport and I have lived and worked there at various times. They are an incredible machine to see.

Had the chance as a kid to get up inside one before it took off. A trip I will never forget.

If I was in a plane that did that landing, I’d have to wear a diaper the rest of my life.
