Perhaps the meaning was "Landings in an awesome crosswind", not "Awesome landings in a crosswind". ;)

4.6 Million views! Forget filming cats...im going to set up a tri pod on a windy day. Ill be rich.


Oh...and half the landings were terrible, apparently centerline and the upwind wing down are optional these days.

lol I bet he scuffed a few tires on that one. Looks like it was a retirement flight, they went under the fire truck salute.

To the whale f/o who claimed to be doing only one landing a month I hope this video helps you in reference to the cross wind landings question you asked about in another thread .
Anyone remember which thread it was because it escapes me ?
Practice makes perfect .

Clearly the water cannons are because the aircraft is arriving at the gate (mostly) in one piece...
