The attached file is interesting because it shows crosswind landing tests
for the big airliners. When I watched it I couldn't believe that the gear
held out when I saw these tests. (Look at the angle of the airplane on the
last sequence).

After watching the landing in LA, I know these tests were not to the full
edge of what the gear can take.

I think any pilot will be amazed.





747 gear turn so the plane can land in a crab. The big boys can't put a wing
down on final or they would drag it.
