To be crabbed about 15-20 degreesoff the runway centerline then land on that is a tremendous load on the body gear, those are Boeing test pilots not ATP's, those are definitely maximum crosswind landings pushing the normal envelope....

Get your head out of your ass. Said it was interesting, not a life changing experience.

That would be a crosswind landing and some good piloting.

I'm no pilot, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night:

The pilot is not "drifting" (in the car sense) the aircraft, he is actually countering drift caused by a crosswind.

I believe they are actually landing in a strong cross wind. I was on a flight like that one night coming into Newark during a bad storm. I was looking out my window (passenger) at about a 45 degree angle and I was looking straight down the runway. Very unusual.

What I think occurs is that in a cross wind, if the pilot lined the plane up straight on the runway the wind would push the plane towards the side of the runway. So the pilot has to fly a little bit into the wind to keep the plane over the runway.

again. sorry.

Yeah crosswind landing, i have done and seen it done in single engine airplanes but have never sen a larger plane do it. The B52 bombers landing gear can rotate 20 degrees so the plane can land in a heavy crosswind.

Fuckin' OWNED !!!!



And to make sure I have something to contribute to this thread, the airplane can't slip because of the wing-mounted engines. When I land my Piper, I dip the upwind wing into the wind and touch down with the upwind wheel first. You cross-control, or "slip" to keep the plane pointing down the runway.

The big jets can't do that because they'd scrape an engine, so they crab. The gear is designed to toggle up to a certain number of degrees.
