Aborted landing

Posted November 26, 2008

Many of you are heading out of town for Thanksgiving.  I thought I'd share this video with you.

Enjoy your flight!

    Yea, strong cross wind, he's in IMC right down to the runway, this guy is good.

    Funny how the non flying public doesn't understand this.

    wonder if he just went around or found better weather? Betcha he got it on the next try.

    I'd be looking for another airport.

    Good grief! He must have been crabbed 35 degrees. Still, agreed with ghimmy51 -- just the fact the plane didn't wind up in a thousand pieces is a minor miracle. I wonder if he'll be on my flight next week...?

    Thanks for making me feel so much safer on Sun. Brian. Bet you are getting a nice chuckle out of this one.

    Years ago when I lived in Austin TX the airport was right in th middle of town and one of the runways ran right up to IH35. Planes always came in right over the freeway. I saw one like this one day, scared the heck out of me. One second, caught in traffic, I noted the plane coming in. The next second, viewed from the opposite car window, it was like the same plane was taking off, engines straining. I can only imagine what it was like for the passengers.

    This video was amazing ... OMG the plane was coming in sideways.

    I'm staying home, thank you Brian!

    Beautiful bit of flying in a strong crosswind. That guy can fly me anywhere.
