Extreme flight videos

After this shock everybody is wondering how such accidents can happen. The following videos show some examples how stressy it can be for a pilot to fly a jet.

This video shows and extreme landing with a 747 a.k.a Jumbo. There is a cross wind during landing and the pilot has to turn the aircraft to the right position in this cross wind.

Extreme landing with a Jumbo

The second video is about a jumbo that takes off on a very short runway. This video shows us what an extreme situation it can be to land or take off on a short runway. Can you imagine how this video would continue if it was wet and rainy?

The next cideo shows a cross wind landing in HongKong. This is an almost accident situation. You can see how hard the pilot tries to keep the aircraft in direction. Finally he manages to put down the plane on the runway, but in a bad angle, so he has to stress test the breaks.

Landing in heavy cross wind

Finally 2 videos from my favorite airport: Saint Marteen. One from the cockpit and one from down under. Although it looks funky, it is not dangerous for the pilot to land on this one.
