Dusseldorf, Germany Crosswind Landing Video

Fri Feb 08, 2013 9:45 pm

Looks like a pretty decent crosswind mixed with a slippery runway. Check out the video here:

The pilots make it look so easy. I imagine the pilots aren't even breaking a sweat.

Jesus, I reckon everyone would have been screaming in the back of that TK 77W, I know the feeling like the aircraft is going to tip over.

Nice footage. Like those superzooms, ultra stable perspectives. You loose all perspective of speed!

Love it, the crabbing approach of the Emirates 77W, and especially how the nosewheel settles right on the centerline, to leave that centerline only when leaving the runway

Nice to see Jat among all those landings...


There seems to be quite a few 'windy' landings on youtube shot at Düsseldorf. Is it common for the airport to have such strong winds?

Agreed. Most impressive, as opposed to the 737 at the 4 minute mark that didn't find the centerline until it turned to exit.

Great Vid.

This is the Youtube version with better quality that the creator himself has uploaded.

You don't get the job unless you can do that day in and day out.

On the Sky 737-900, it must have the new emergency exit "activated" as it's called, with a small window and more apparent exit, as opposed to many others in the U.S. that have a regular window in it and the exit isn't "activated?" Anyone know if that's the difference? Thanks.

Lovely vid.

Must have been a great day for spotting... Heavy crosswind and sub-zero temperatures. That spotter deserves good respect for freezing his butt of for us to enjoy the view.


On a sidenote: Is it comming practice at AF to leave the reverser in until turning off the runway? Very surprised there, I thought it's a rather tricky piece of equipment that shouldn't be overused. Or is this some kind of XW-SOP?

Actually, I was really impressed with that Boeing 737. He kinda landed like I do in my flight simulator. If all three wheels touch pavement it's a successful landing! lol

I think you'll find this is a new one, was only posted on Youtube on Feb 2nd.

His original one from last year has been posted numerous times.

I agree, that one was absolutely picture perfect!

Good one ... but we've all been there!
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

Yeap, Sky is a Turkish charter airline with an all Y215 seat configuration- so due to safety regulation mandatory the aft exits are usable...

nobody's mentioned the LH A320 (+ or - 1) taking off at 1:30. Although not a landing, it still shows some crazy crosswind and an excellent job by the pilots.
