Vodka or Crosswinds…You Decide.

Uh…Crosswind controls? Never mind.

Another notable IL-76 landing.   IL-76s fly to some tough places around the world.  They are commonly flown to international hotspots from Afghanistan to Africa.  There are also a number of photos showing the difficulty of landing the jet in crosswinds.

In this video below, you’ll see the IL-76 land then veer off to the right side of the runway before making a half-hearted attempt to return to centerline.  I’m not sure I’d want to be on it.  What about you?
