A visitor from Germany posted Fri January 27, 2012:
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.

A visitor from Korea, Republic Of posted Fri July 1, 2011:
By the early 2010s, airline pilots had begun to experiment certain aerobatics on their own, such as the one-wheel touchdown, pictured here.

A visitor from Australia posted Fri July 1, 2011:
Wow thats a different way to take off..LOL

A visitor from United States posted Fri July 1, 2011:
Great shot.. and very entertaining comments from the peanut gallery.

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue June 21, 2011:
Demarking area...

A visitor from India posted Sun June 13, 2010:
The right wing tip does not seem to be all that close to the ground....follow that shadow!!!

A visitor from - posted Mon March 15, 2010:
I really hope that there was crosswind as an excuse - if not, the dancing part will do! Very nice picture indeed!

A visitor from - posted Sun November 1, 2009:
Showoff! Captain to co-pilot: "wanna see how far we can go on one wheel?"!

A visitor from - posted Sun September 27, 2009:
Skills! One wheel landing! :)

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 27, 2009:
What is this guy trying to do????? Go around!!!!

A visitor from Nigeria posted Thu April 9, 2009:
That poor right wheel

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu April 9, 2009:
Do you think the passengers felt it? :)

A visitor from Germany posted Sat April 4, 2009:
Very nice. Some kind of trick-touch down ;) 5 Stars of course.

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 7, 2009:

A visitor from Germany posted Wed December 17, 2008:
I hope nobody on board got sick ;) Very nice picture and an unusual view on a 320.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 6, 2008:
Ha ha ha, I believe that it is dancing on the runway? Great picture!

A visitor from Belgium posted Fri August 8, 2008:
This is what they call swiss precision ;)

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon July 21, 2008:
I sure hope this is not how they usually do it, cause next saturday i will be on board of a A320 from Swiss to ZRH. Great shot, absolutely 5 stars.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri May 23, 2008:
Almost makes me want to book a trip to ZRH if the landings are like this! On a serious note, awesome photo!

A visitor from France posted Fri May 16, 2008:
Wow !!! Was it a crosswind landing ??
5 stars

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue March 18, 2008:
Very nice shot

A visitor from - posted Tue March 11, 2008:
Airbuses tend to do this a lot, don't they ;)

A visitor from United States posted Sat March 8, 2008:
Now we know who Lufthansa was immitating. lol

A visitor from United States posted Wed January 23, 2008:
Tip toeing onto the runway. Nice pic. I wonder what the pax were think onboard this flight

A visitor from Switzerland posted Mon December 17, 2007:
Nice dancing airplane

A visitor from Finland posted Sat December 15, 2007:
The right wingtip is not even visible in this picture. Great photo though.

A visitor from Portugal posted Fri November 16, 2007:
Great shot! Cheers KLM-fan

A visitor from Thailand posted Tue August 7, 2007:
Oops! never see landing like this!

A visitor from Morocco posted Fri July 27, 2007:
Ouuuups, poor passengers.. nice picture anyway.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 29, 2007:
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.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue June 5, 2007:
I fly an A320 myself and this is definetly NOT x-wind standard procedure!

A visitor from Austria posted Tue June 5, 2007:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Wow! How close is the right wingtip to the ground??
You don't capture something like this every day.

A visitor from - posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Cross wind standard procedure

A visitor from Canada posted Mon June 4, 2007:
That right wingtip is almost touching the ground!

A visitor from Spain posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Amazing! I wouldnt like to be on that plane!!

A visitor from Belgium posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Wow .... that is some landing ... what are the pilots thinking at this instant of time :-)

A visitor from Luxembourg posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Wow! Hats off to the Capt/ F/O for not totalling the plane!

A visitor from Singapore posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Wow! thats a crazy touchdown... A+++

A visitor from Hungary posted Mon June 4, 2007:
It must have been a cool landing memory for the passengers:) I wish I would have been on board:) But it's 5 stars, of course!

A visitor from United States posted Mon June 4, 2007:
I wouldn't wanna be on that plane...

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Great pic!!!!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Mon June 4, 2007:
"Ding" - Eehh, excuse me, miss. Could you please bring me some paper towels?

A visitor from France posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Very impressive picture

A visitor from Mexico posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Taken in the right time. T.B.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon June 4, 2007:
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!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Only in Switzerland. lol

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon June 4, 2007:
Awsome Shot! 5 Stars!

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Mon June 4, 2007:
What the hell! The pilots should go-around! Nice shot!
