These are some of the most extreme cross wind landings I have ever seen.

Shocked Wow
Going by the paint job, those landings were a test by Boeing.
Not much at the airfield,so perhaps its just used for testing

They could be tests, I can't imagine a plane loaded with passengers making a landing like that.

I got it in email yesterday and I don't know where the original is posted. I uploaded it to my web space so I could share it here.

I have no idea on the sound track.

Those pilots aren't just good, they're amazing.
Some of those aircraft didn't look like they were going to land, I thought they were just going to hang in mid air.
Fantastic video, thanks.

I think TTT is right, these must be test flights. I can't imagine a commercial airport allowing a landing in such extreme conditions.

That is the reason I think these may be factory tests. Landings like these could be hard on the entire airframe IMO.

You aren't kidding WarHawk. It has got to be tremendously streesing to the entire aircraft. I noticed that there wern't any airline liveries on these. Could you imagine being air crew or a passenger...???

In a word NO. Laughing

Stress gauges was one of the things I repaired and recertified when I worked on Aircraft electronics. I would imagine stress gauges were going off all over the place.Smile

The language that is used in the movie is most likely Italian & most likely Latin. Also, when the 777 lands after the first time in the video, they are just replay's of the first 777 landing.

That's the video but I got it in email. I didn't know where it originated from.

Thanks for finding it. I can free up my web space by replacing it with this URL.
