Yes it's funny, but I am sure the passangers were not laughing. There is another video that I've just posted which makes me laugh very hard.

Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

I bet it takes years of experience to execute a smooth heavy crosswind landing.

That is where pilots make their money. I am a bit surprised though that the pilot didn't go around sooner. Heavy crosswinds do take some time to get used to, but gusting heavy winds are even more tricky. Also, I am not sure how stable the approach for that video was, ie. whether the pilots were setup on a 10 mile final, or if they turned in on a shorter final.

No problem. If you look on their home page, there's a button that shows you how you can subscribe. It's kinda like a Yahoo Group, but it also lets you know when they upload new videos.  Smile
