This landing was sponsored by [insert name of tyre company here].

The plane is swinging left at touch down

At the same time full left rudder is applied?

Just watch it, unbelievable.

It would be interesting to know how much of the oscillations was caused by human reaction time and how much by rudder actuating system lag. Perhaps they need some faster servos?!?

When you see how fast the spay from the tires was being blown side ways (at ground level!) it makes you wonder how close he was to the cross wind limit. wink 2

I clicked on the link and watchedsurprise. My wife and I flew into Schiphol Airport years ago. We arrived at that sort of angle. I'm glad we had the pilot we did! SWMBO is not good at flying, so I omitted to tell her the approach and distracted her from looking out the window.

I also got side- tracked on YouTube and found voice recordings of ATC getting annoyed with pilots. Very interesting.

Looks like the limit was passed to me.

Interesting but scary landing.

Not sure if it's me but the point at which it touches the runway the centre line and boundary lines seem to show quite a marked, from the pilots eye view, curve/turn to the left. Weird.. I imagine it's an optical illusion due to quite a dip in the runway.

Piers, you reminded me - A really good landing is one where they can use the aeroplane again........

And one where you can reuse the 'plane again afterwards is a superb landing...

I once had a landing in a strong cross-wind (but in a rather smaller plane) that was rather like that. It was at London City airport which made it a little un-nerving as there's water on both sides of the runway. I'd never previously heard tyre-squeal on an aircraft after the initial touch-down, but we certainly got plenty of it that day as we veered from one side of the runway to the other.

It's hard to imagine that that landing did not over-stress parts of the landing gear or its supporting structure.
