@ Visitor from Germany, Feb 12th 2012:
Guy, what the heck are you explaining? The pilots did everything right. Safe landing, even if not with wings levelled. According to the situation the A/C expirienced a right crosswind, and the crew worked the situation by applying right rudder and aileron! Have a look at the right wing, you can clearly see the aileron is deflected upwards, which means the right-hand wing will LOSE lift. Next time you should better do your homework instead of questioning the pilot's airmanship in an unnormal situation like this! I bet you would've failed!! #sigh

Nice catch!

Stunning shot!!! Look how close the no. 1 engine is to the ground!!! :o

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue March 13, 2012:
Excellent photo the windsock gives you a great sense of what is actually going on outside, To the visiter from Germany, everyone make mistakes, the Important thing is that we learn from them, believe me I have seen many a rougher landing than that.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun February 12, 2012:
Excellent photo and very bad pilot handling of the crosswind situation, obviously there is a strong crosswind from the right and by looking on the plane attitude and position of the rudder the pilot made a completely opposite flight control inputs, in this situation the aircraft should be with a right bank and rudder deflection to the left not as it is, lucky they))))worst than student pilot performance,this guy shouldn't be on the the flight deck of any plane,flying passengers, what a shame for British airways, one of the greatest ( NOT ) (((((

Ron, your photos are amazing...looking through all of them I have yet to find one that doesn't tickle my pickle...

Great timing Ron , Excellent shot !

A visitor from - posted Sat September 10, 2011:
Speedbird making a crosswind landing. This photographer is so good he captured the wind sock in the background, which shows it to be a crosswind landing.This might be somewhat "normal" for the 747-400. The roughest landing I was ever in was a 747-400 landing in Chicago in stormy weather.

A visitor from - posted Thu August 11, 2011:
Absolutely amazing. I love the composition of this shot! The visitor is right, not a typical crosswind landing. This particular landing must have been a hard one.

A visitor from Singapore posted Wed January 26, 2011:
This goes to show just how strong them landing gears are. Its amazing how the airframe is able to take the stress of take-offs and landings like these. The 747 rules!


A visitor from - posted Sat December 11, 2010:
Doubtful this is a typical crosswind landing. I would guess it was a hard landing, not typical at all. Great capture!

A visitor from China posted Fri December 10, 2010:
I was in this plane! I was right at the wing! I had some business to do in London and Boston. Later on I took a flight to LA and from there to PEK. It was a pretty scary experience trust me! Everything else though on BA was outstanding!

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 10, 2010:
It's a typical crosswind landing people....

A visitor from - posted Fri December 10, 2010:
WOW. This is a fantastic definition of a crosswind landing with the excessive use of the rudder with the correction using yaw. 6 stars

A visitor from Israel posted Fri December 10, 2010:
Well, this is another reason to put the engines beneth the wing. They should put a little metal beam on the bottom of the engines to avoid colission with the ground.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 10, 2010:
Fantastic Shot Ron! Nice East Boston houses in the back. PC for today. Oliver

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 10, 2010:
Wild photo. Could have been a very expensive landing. Thankfully all went well.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 10, 2010:
Wow Ron! Great moment captured. The windsock near #1 illustrates the crosswind and I like the rudder deflection as well.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 10, 2010:
Cmon BA! You are better than that!

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 10, 2010:
I'm sure the passengers won't forget it either! :-) Tony

A visitor from Poland posted Fri December 10, 2010:
Nice catch! Engines number 1 & 2 are so close to the ground. Looks scary to me ;)
