You have got to see these! It an amazing video of the 777 and 747SP under going their crosswind testing. Supposedly it takes place down in Brazil where they have some seriously fierce winds at this particular airport. Turn on your speakers too! They have the video set to some music by Enigma that makes it all the nicer! Enjoy! The last 777 landing is truly spectacular!

Check the rudder action on that last landing! And I love that SP in those old Boeing house colours, what a beaut!


After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

I've seen this many many times. It's still rather impressive.


It only takes five years to go from rumor to standard operating procedure.

Sorry for the off-topic but ... does anyone know the name of the background song? I've preview-listened to all Enigma songs on iTunes Store but couldn't find it.

The song is called "Return to innocence"... and x-wind landings are fun to perform...

T7 is a beauty! I really liked the last landing. What is the maximum crosswind that they can sustain during the landing?

Last landing looks like it may be auto-land. The 777 looks like it was here: http://www.boeing.com/commercial/techsvcs/boeingtech/bts_flita.html

One the first landing I think its a 777 what is that string thing hanging on the top of the rudder ?

I can get over how good this video is even though I have seen it umpteen time before ..... wish there was a higher resolution version of this - DVD even ....

Wow..those videos were amazing, thanks for the post.

Just asking, in a real life situation, would an airport still operate landings and takeoffs with such heavy winds? Would be quite a test on the pilots' skills.

its not a string; it is a small parachute on the tail to measure the forces acting up on the tail

Seen those many times but still can't get over them. Are there any other videos of crosswind tests? Would love to see videos of other widebodies in these situations during testing.

I never knew planes can fly that way! that was some serious crabbing love the video i can watch over and over and never get bored. Also, i wonder at the same time they are testing the engines if it will stall because of the crosswind taking to much air away from the inlets of the engines.

I think that Boeing was testing the 777 for this at some point -- I believe it's mentioned in "21st Century Jet," but I don't have that with me right now.

Could you imagin being just another joe sixpack on the forward facing side of the AC doing a crab landing like that?

I would love to have access to all of Boeing and Airbus' testing videos... aborted take-off, tail strike... etc.

I can only dream :'(
