Very neat shot. Right at the correct time.

A visitor from - posted Fri March 30, 2012:
I imagine the one at the controls is doing a bit of wrestling with the yoke at this point. Great picture.

Wow, go billy

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed March 3, 2010:
This is an excellent action shot, and trust me, this is how you land a jet in crosswind conditions, opposite rudder, and wing into wind to counter the rolling moment that occurs as a result of yaw increasing the speed of the airflow over the windward wing. If you didn't roll into it, the aeroplane would flip the opposite way, add the crosswind to that and you could depart from the runway. In crosswinds its ok to land on the upwind gear first, it doesn't have to be level.

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 6, 2009:
Wonderful action shot at a critical moment!

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 23, 2008:
Great shot! it was the training that SouthWest provided for their pilots that help them get this bird on the ground

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon July 21, 2008:
The landing: amazing. The livery: amazing. The aircraft: amazing. The whole danm thing? AMAZING!!! Awesome shot! Hats off to the pilots.

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 21, 2008:
Are you scared?!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 6, 2007:
Cool! I've made similar landings on Flight Simulator.

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 28, 2007:
Knowing how WN pilots like doing short finals, I first thought this may have been TOO close of one!

A visitor from Germany posted Mon August 13, 2007:
Cool shot of a plane i`d never like to be in such a situation

A visitor from Venezuela posted Wed August 8, 2007:
Excellent crosswind technique... a beautiful photo too!

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue August 7, 2007:
Great capture! I'm happy that I was not on that flight.

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 6, 2007:
Cheers to the flight crew for getting this bird on the ground safely. I fly thru LAS regularly, and this is almost always what the landings are like. Very hot temperatures outside make it a very bumpy approach in the desert!

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 6, 2007:
This is a very proper crosswind landing for that size jet in a crosswind of 20-25kts, right before touchdown dip the upwind wing and "roll" the plane to the ground. Excellent shot.

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 5, 2007:
Southwest Airlines Rocks! Beautiful Landing shot.

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 5, 2007:
Strong crosswind from the left (check the METARs), upwind wing dipped, opposite rudder deflection. Sounds right to me! It would've been fun to be on board that aircraft, and even better to be on a Tedbus listening in on Channel 9...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun August 5, 2007:
Nice picture there just like my no wind landings on Flight sim lol!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun August 5, 2007:
This is great

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 4, 2007:
This is a proper crosswind landing, especially in the gusty conditions at LAS. Ignore anyone who says otherwise.

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 4, 2007:
Looks like a forward slip to landing

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat August 4, 2007:
Coool looks like ms flighsim

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat August 4, 2007:
Great photo but this is not a perfect crosswind landing! If you have had to manoeuvre the jet like this so close to touchdown you have misjudged the crosswind! Sorry to disappoint the armchair experts! ;)

A visitor from Australia posted Sat August 4, 2007:
Great shot

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 4, 2007:
Unusual attitude at ten feet

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 4, 2007:
Wing crosswind huh?

A visitor from Australia posted Sat August 4, 2007:
Its so beautiful... ;)

A visitor from Sweden posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Oh my god!! Crazy landing!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Must be very strong crosswind! Nice perspective!

A visitor from India posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Just so much precision is required in whatever they do sitting in the cockpit. Wonder what the persons sitting on this side of windows would be thinking.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Wow! What a landing. I've landed many times at LAS, but none as fun as this one. Nice photo.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Nice shot. Perfect cross-wind landing utilizing the wing down method!

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 3, 2007:
I wonder what the pax on the left side were thinking!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Hang on to something...

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 3, 2007:
Umm... whoa! Great shot, but that is not a flight I would have liked to be on.

A visitor from Portugal posted Fri August 3, 2007:
That was close, nice catch Jason! Keep it! Regards, Allen Azevedo

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 2, 2007:
I was there when this aircraft was presented in Tampa. I have a picture of me standing right next to it!
