Amazing JAL crosswind landing


This is an old video from 1998. Once in a while I would go to youtube to watch this video. You can see a JAL Cargo plane did a crosswind landing at the old HKG in the video. Honestly, I was kind of shocked the first time I saw this and thought the plane is going to crash LOL (but I knew it didn't because I would have heard of it).

Landing at the old HKG is extremely challenging because of the final steep turn the pilot has to make during approach. But the view from the plane is absolutely amazing. I still miss the good old days when I flew to that airport.
