    I would shit myself.

    After the second attempt they flew to a different airfield to land, which they did.

    I had this happen to me once flying into Louisville. The crosswinds were blowing us out of alignment. It took three tries, and we had to come in from the opposite direction.

    Scary.

    That Airbus pilot looks to be weak, also. He could've stuck that landing.

    I was on a flight to Albuquerque. The landing was so rough, the passengers gave the pilot applause when we landed. Scared the shit out of me.

    The technology that enables that is so fucking amazing, yet people worship criminals who can run fast and bounce a ball.

    I always say things like 'no one knows the guy or girl who invented something like chemotherapy that helps people live or who figured out how to go to the moon, but they all know who some high school drop put boog who bounces a basket ball is" America, what a country!

    There's a video of an airstrip in South America where airline pilots go to train -- OUTRAGEOUS crosswinds, they're crabbing @ 45 degrees... DO NOT WANT!!!

    That's pretty cool, but that's not exactly the same size plane.

    That landing strip didn't exactly help. It looked like a roller coaster.
