Re: Admire the skill. EY A380 strong crosswind landing at LHR

That huge rudder fully deflecting after touchdown ... :shock: During the storm last week, a video showed the rear view of an A380 landing, the dancing ailerons never cease to amaze me.

Wait until is full of fuel and things, wings will flex for sure, look at the rotation it was almost with no nose-up attitude.

Never understood helicopters autorrotation! Airspeed is needed. Thanks!

Saw helicopters do take off runs lots os times, even experienced it once in a very loaded Mi-8 over Shimla. You can't hover a loaded helicopter without airspeed.
