It was extremely difficult to hold the camera steady - a very windy day - plus the Horizon F28 blocked
some of the view - but watch this MD-80 depart 12R on a windy day - after the MD-80 appears from behind
the F-28 - watch the side squib at this jet screams out of SJC

It's just a standard x-wind takeoff isn't it? Nicely pointing it's nose in the wind and keep rwy track.....

Reminds me of ATL on so many clear winters days when a "high" has just moved in. Wonderful!!!!!!!!!!

I got to thinking about it, and I wish I had some video footage to show you of an old Southern Airways Martin 404 trying to land at ATL back in the old days. What a riot! Typically about 6 to 10 degrees nosedown coming over the numbers you could just see the guys up front fighting to get the damn thing on the concrete. (The aircraft would just "hunt" all over the place and "float" in "ground-effect" forever.) They did get it on the deck, of course, as eventually they would just quit flying, but watching the action used to be great spectator-sport.  bigthumbsup 

So different than an L-188----- bobbing around and then slamming down on the deck. BAM! They were so kool to watch and even better to experience----on board the aircraft!

Oh, and an 880 on a blustery day was something to behold as well! I guess one of the koolest things about those departures with the "old smokies" was observing the black contrail "flying sideways" as the aircraft departed in the stiff cross-wind.

Of course there are going to be people who say "oh no big deal.. standard" But the truth is, none of us see that everyday!
Thanks for the video

To be honest with you, it seems like you're the one overreacting.

Fantastic video! Crosswind ops are always fun to watch.

I sure miss seeing those old Horizon F-28s on the Fairgrounds Visual approach...

Thanks for all of the comments on the video everyone - and please be cool - I am just an average guy who loves airliner video and audio - and I don't know all of the airline terms - but I do have fun making these and posting them. They are just for fun and nostalgia - so I never take offense to the corrections or comments anymore - I did that once and mis-interpreted the posting, and paid dearly- thanks again..!
