Two very hairy landings shot from the famous Spottersplek Polderbaan adjacent to runway 18R / 36L at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam are featured. In the first video, a China Southern Air Cargo Boeing 777-F1B (reg B-2027) experiences a HAIRY crosswind landing on runway 18R at AMS. China Southern began operating the 777-200ER in 1997. They have operated a total of 18 777-200s, 777-200ERs and 777-300ERs and operate a dozen 777F freighters today. Watch those big wings flexing on approach! Thanks to YouTuber and friend Jerry Taha Productions for uploading these eye-catching clips.
In the second clip a China Airlines Airbus A350-941 (reg B-18905) puts down on 18R at AMS with a heavy crosswind component in the mix. Look at that crosswind offset and crabbing correction the pilot holds to keep the airliner moving parallel to the runway! Those wind turbines in the background don’t seem to be spinning very fast. China Airlines operates eight A350s with another six on order.
