Wing-Down method, standard cross wind landing technique performed as per the book.

Very good photo, and there's nothing wrong with the bank angle- the aeroflot pilots are actually demonstrating the wing-low technique perfectly

Probably, the best airlines related photo I've seen. But, again, I haven't seen too many of them.

Very nice photo. Tupolevs are soo beautiful and this picture shows the best of it. Btw, American who said left main gear is on centerline. Maybe you could think abit what you say, you see in reality the airraft is perfectly centered, only the angle the picture is taken from fools your eye.

I'd say there must have been crosswind from plane's right to left; so the flight crew were still crabbing when they touched down. Notice that the rudder was still deflected to keep in plane slightly right while fighting the crosswinds which was still providing lift to the right wing.

Surprised to see this wing low landing since the flight manual I saw states that the 154 is decrabbed only after touchdown.
