I can't see any "Yikes" when a perfect crosswind landing is being made. By the way one doesn't need a crosswind, to make a crosswind landing. Sometimes it's good for training to do 'em in normal wind conditions.

To below comment : Yes, I agree with you that it was, eventually, a perfect crosswind landing. BUT, when I was following the aircraft coming in over the appoaches through viewfinder from quite a distance, and all the time it was rock solid, perfect level, without the slightest movement, but then, when about 20 feet or so, above runway, WHAM.... it suddenly drops one wing like in photo....yes, in that instance, you say.."Yikes..!"
