A Look Back: Cathay Pacific 747-400BCF 'Extreme Crosswind Landing'

Never before (or since for that matter) have I been at an airport and seen (or filmed) such an extreme crosswind landing as this one.

The flight crew of this Cathay Pacific Boeing 747-400BCF (B-KAI) certainly earned their salary during this landing which can be described as anything but routine.

Extreme crabbing, a skid on touchdown and aggressive rudder control combine with awesome, engine sounds to form an impressive show of unquestionable skill and confidence.

I am made up to have it on film for #AvGeeks around the world to enjoy it in the comfort of their own homes.
