    Of all places, I saw this in the OAF.

    Pretty cool stuff.

    Some of the airline pilots on an aviation forum (where I stole the link) I frequent have explained that indeed the 777 does have steerable mains...something I certainly was unaware of.

    I've been in the sim to watch the 777 do a single-engine autoland with a 50 knot pure crosswind with no gust dialed in. Awesome!

    wow, that was impressive. I know the long lens exaggerates the effect, but that 777 looked like it was flying sideways. Watching a skilled pilot do a tricky corsswind landing is one of the cooler things to watch in aviation.

    The 777-300 is the longest airliner in production. Longer than a 747, A340, and the A380. Those steerable mains come in quite handy.

    My favorite video is a UPS DC-8 that almost lost it on a strong crosswind landing.

    When I read the title I thought you had witnessed my 1st solo landing.

    I love the fancy footwork on the last one, the AC must have taken flying lessons at Fred Astaire Dance Studios!






    BTW my first solo landing would have sounded more like "N714AJ, cleared for landing runway 36, winds 35 at 3 gusting to 4" but with only 20hrs it sure felt like more. ;f

    Cool video.

    If that wasnt obviously some kind of flight testing, Id say that airport was suffering from a severe lack of a runway 9!

    Take that tires!

    My PPL Checkride.

    N424ER, clear to land runway 7L, winds 040 @ 18 Gusting to 30. That was interesting to say the least, but I kept it under control.


    Im waiting for somebody to post the video of the Asian 747 that nearly smacks his outboard engine trying to crab it out on final.

    Echo Romeo? An Embry-Riddle grad, perhaps?

    I had a bonanza with a flight school intructor getting a checkride from a rather crusty examiner land on a north-south taxiway when the crosswind (about 40 knots) was to strong for our east-west runways. The examiner did the landing. BOTH flight schools on the airport emptied out onto the ramp to watch the landing. The look on the flight instuctors face when he visited us in the tower was priceless.;P

    We got the x-wind technique down but only at the expense of teaching a flare. Can't count how many chickenhawks had to be sent off to fix waffled firewalls from carrier landings. Don't get me started on the cracked main wing spars on ALL arrows and seminoles!

    At least we already know how to fly a 747 traffic pattern ;Q
