I'm wondering what the X-wind was on that moment? It is a normal procedure to have a little bank when de-crapping the plane before touchdown, but this looks like a little too much. Nicely captured!

Wow! How close is the right wingtip to the ground??
You don't capture something like this every day.

To the visitor from "nowhere": In light GA aircrafts, this is a standard procedure; but Airliners usually compensate the drift with the rudder and some correction angle.

I fly an A320 myself and this is definetly NOT x-wind standard procedure!

Great photo but not a good landing at all! As has been said this is not how you land an airliner in a crosswind! Excessive use of aileron with wing mounted engines is dangerous.

I really hope that there was crosswind as an excuse - if not, the dancing part will do! Very nice picture indeed!

By the early 2010s, airline pilots had begun to experiment certain aerobatics on their own, such as the one-wheel touchdown, pictured here.

Guys, it's taken with a zoom lense. The distance between the main landing gears appears shorter than it is, and the bank angle appear larger than it really is (certainly there).

The -invisible- wingtip fence may well have some solid ground clearance.
