Lies!!
WTF!!! A little beyond the xwind limit?!! Especially from the 3rd landing on! I guess it depends on which way the wind is coming from as to who lands the airplane since the downwind pilot cant even see the runway with that much crab...

Fantastic machine

What can you say about Boeing except that they make a fantastic machine.

The freaky part about landing an airplane of that size in a crab is that the cockpit needs to be situated over the runway edge to keep the mains on the centerline. :eek:

If I'm not mistaken, the text is Portuguese. I think it read "Holy Schnikies!!!"

Where were they doing this at? And why? Is that x-wind certification stuff? That would be so cool to do!

My wife did a rough translation:

It is not every day that we find the winds calm. What to make in these situations? He flies. He comes back to the time of flying club. One remembers his (instructors or instructions) and he makes a safe landing. These pilots have certainly flown conventional aircraft. He learns with the best ones.

Boeing 777 crosswind certification videos....

Saw them originally back in 96' during a special vip tour of the Boeing widebody plant. They had some even crazier stuff that they showed us that day as well. Cool stuff all around.

The way some of these Asian airlines fly those things it's a good thing that even something that big can take stuff like that.
