62 mph Crosswind in Close-up: Storm Doris

Follow by Email
DescThe strongest gusting I have filmed in - up to 62 mph/54 knots - made 23 February 2017 unique for me. Plenty of heavy wing flexing, furious flicking of control surfaces, and a near tail strike, making a great opportunity to see in detail how planes and pilots handled the unusually difficult conditions. This is my fourth video from the day. The others cover the 8 go-arounds, some wider-angle shots, and the debris blown up by the wind. Those vids are: The 8 go-arounds - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4d2w444j4jE 4 awkward approaches in wider angle - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T3p9vFXfPk flying debris - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OmwRMj9eHQ

Some Loser : Imagine landing with crosswinds and looking out the window and being like, “I don’t think im supposed to see the runway when landing

BadUploadScheduleツ : 5:05 that looked like a really steep angle for a takeoff in such conditions... Also when the Ryanair landed right after it wasn’t special or anything, just how Ryanair lands all the time

JACKPRESTO 123 : 5:05 that Thomas cook fligh was like 2 inches from slamming that rear end into the ground

alan koza : Hold my beer ... I'll land this !!

Raja Varma : Imagine being a passenger in that purple flight

quinnjim : Thomas Cook really over rotated badly at 5:00. Looks like he may have hit the tail. If not, it was VERY close. In high winds, we usually rotate slowly to make sure we build plenty of speed in turbulent conditions.
