As aviation enthusiasts up-and-down the country made their way to the country’s largest airports to capture some genuinely remarkable take-offs and landings during storm Dennis, one video stood out (scroll down for video).
It was the footage of an Etihad A380 as it was hit by a sudden gust of wind just before it landed causing the aircraft to have to carry out a ‘crab’ landing – where the pilot points the nose of the plane into the wind until just before the wheels touch the ground.
The remarkable landing at Heathrow airport was one of many such arrivals where highly skilled pilots used all of their experience to land in conditions which were within the operating limits of their aircraft.
Although the pilot of the A380 caught in the video received widespread acclaim by the millions of people who watched the video, his/her training department was not that impressed (are training departments ever impressed?).
