Apr 2015 - Crosswind landings

Recommended Posts

It's been a blustery start to April here in the UK and the internet is full of images of aircraft landing almost sideways! 

 

This month's competition has the theme of "Crosswind landings". This would be a picture of any aircraft making a dodgy landing!

Taken during 2013's DC-3 Airways Rally, this was a nice cross wind end to Leg 2:

Not very picturesque - default scenery, no clouds,etc, but I was lucky to walk away from it...

Cheers - Dai. :old-git:

Perhaps not the dodgiest of landings, but a bit dodgy with the strong wind that was blowing.  But due to my exceptional flying skills, you can hardly tell. :P

A Wet and Windy day at London City airport. Wind Gusting upto 45 knots. Hold onto your hats, this is going to be a bumpy landing.
