I have seen buzzing the ATC, but **mooning** them?

Great capture,crosswinds indeed.

If this wasn't a crosswind landing, this pilot was way off!

A familiar sight for inexperienced "armchair Captains".
To the chap below, DH was 660ft, which should be at the middle marker. At this point if the runway is not in sight you execute a missed approach, but you can still go around for reasons other than vis.: in the case of Kai Tak this means not being able to put the thing down!

Nice and "rare" shot.
Hopefully you have now a better camera :P

Lucky them to fly 747. It can handle such a rough

A go around would be great, But it's a nice shot.

Ooops, wrong way!

I think he should go up and try his approach again, or risk landing in the water. Awesome shot.
| A visitor from United States posted Sat March 29, 2008:|
Pull up and try it all over again. Don't risk bending the airplane.

This photo is amazing! It would be very difficult to find something similar.

I recon he's just about to give some left rudder and have a fairly smooth landing :)

This is one of those Kai Tak photos that gets my heart beat racing just looking at it!

It is spectacular to see a plane like that in this position with probably a right wind

Co-pilot to Captain: "What do you mean, you've only got a PPL ?!!"

It's most serious crosswind i've ever seen!

Kai Tak claims another pair of underpants...
What would the decision altitude have been I wonder? Probably committed to the landing and too late to go around.

Unusual position of the plane such close to the ground.

No no no. you land on the runway. not the grass or water

Great composition, excellent light and colours, not too much sharpness (dynamic!) - and of course a spectacular moment!
