https://autos.yahoo.com/news/watch-airplane-terrifying-sideways-landing-173001135.html

The plane was attempting to land at Leeds Bradford Airport in the UK during very windy conditions (which aren’t unusual at this airport). It is the highest airport in the country and one where it is notoriously difficult to land even on the best of days. Last week, winds reached up to 100 MPH putting the skills of pilots to the test.

Crosswind landings can get damn hairy. They sure are fun to watch when done properly by competent crew.

Cross wind takeoffs are cool too.

Yea fuck that. Fly into Heathrow Airport then rent an car instead.

While I agree, sliding on ice just isn't as butt puckering in a Corvette as it is in a fully loaded school bus.

I had a thrill ride/crosswind landing in a DC-10 into SFI. Plenty of gasps in the cabin as the airframe shuttered. I think I laughed.

I'm impressed. Especially as that was a Ryanair flight.

All of my NOPES.

Every last one.

Hell, I'll take out a mortgage to buy more NOPES if I have to.

Now, a serious question for you aviation guys: Does that sort of thing shorten the life of the aircraft?

Sort of like a Crown Vic owned by elderly folks in FL would be in far better shape than the same car with the same miles, but owned by the NYPD.

Lot of variables in that question.

Generally no. It can be hard on tires and struts. And yes If the pilots try to land the plane like they are trapping on a carrier.
The latter case is real rough on lots of things.

I was landing in an Otter that rolled 90* at a hundred feet due to crosswind. We aborted.

A 90 degree uncommanded roll?

Did you need new pants after that?

We were landing at Kirtland AFB with a direct 35 knot crosswind in a C-130. According to the charts that put it right on the aircraft limits. Two things were concerning me. The aircraft commander was young and the cargo we were carrying....fissionable material. I was the flight engineer sitting right behind the pilots. While we were about to touchdown I swear my asshole was in my throat. The AC greased it on like it wasn't an issue at all. Nothing to it.

It is what it is. Sometimes it is not feasible to level vast areas for a perfectly level runway when the aircraft can land on slightly uneven surfaces without any problem what so ever.

Crosswind limit on 737 is 35kts.

That was an outstanding landing however. Good job!
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 12:27:56 AM EST
Landed a King Air in direct 30kt crosswind. That was enough for me! When I touched down I was out of rudder and aileron.
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 12:45:36 AM EST
Do any airliners have landing gear that rotate to compensate like on a B-52?

You must have hit the once a year. Usually SFI is a smooth landing, unless you happen to have an inexperienced Korean crew. DIA is always an active landing, but not concerningly so.
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 1:10:06 AM EST
That looked like fun. It would be cool to look out the side windows and see the runway head on

Wow. I've never seen anything like that before. That was wild. I'm sure the passengers wern't exactly calm.

Been there, done that and guessing it was about 4+ over that limit (actual). Out of the hundreds........ of flights I've been on, that was the one that got me puckered up the most. I've been on flights with turbulence so bad the wings looked more like that of a bird flapping

All in all, aluminum is an amazing material and these beast can take a serious pounding.

Landed an R22 in 17G43 a while ago.

Fuck. That. Shit. Never again.

Yes, some of the airliners gear sets have the ability to crab in a crosswind.

Had the high crosswind landing in Orlando. With a warning from the pilot that it would be a hard landing. It was . Opened overhead bins and probably broke parts. The wind was gusty and 30 plus low end.

I will say the longest seconds of my life involved attempting to push the rudder pedal through the floor on a C172 while landing at Brooks county airport.

I hate that airport to this day, however, the FBO has a pistol range and that is kinda cool.
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 11:24:00 AM EST
Nothing like the rudder at the stops on a crosswind landing. Not my favorite.
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 11:30:15 AM EST
I flew into Port Alsworth AK a few years ago in a small single engine Cessna. We had to abort our landing a few times due to the high winds. When we did land it was about like the planes in the video, at least 30 degrees diagonal to the landing strip, the engine nearly stalled one time after a huge gust. I was glad to get out of that plane.

Kinda like my teams ride into Epply (Omaha) from Detroit last night in a little CRJ flying mini van.... Biker chick (Captain) and her 20 yr old (looking) co pilot did a good cross wind landing!!!!

Extremely long range telephoto lens.

That is very true. A telephoto lens can exaggerate things quite a lot.

I wonder if a Piper Cub or other slow aircraft has ever landed rolling backwards in strong winds.
