Vietnam A359 landing in a 32 knot crosswind at Melbourne a short while ago. The key to crosswind landings is to get the aircraft down on the runway as soon as possible.
Cool Pictures, I love the Vietnam Airlines Livery! Excellent job for keeping it on the Centerline too!
Nice pictures. I was wondering do you remember what the V/S was for the landing?
Looks like your approach was executed very well, nice job!
Not too sure mate, as I don’t have IF Operations
Cheers mate. I love a good crosswind
You don’t need it. You can go to replay and HUD view. Watch right under the altitude monitor. You can see your V/ S there.
I’ll have a look now
I love the A350, and this landing must have been tough.
That’s a tricky landing, you really did a good job with that!
And now, I shall nominate you to be awarded by @PocketRishi for landing perfectly centerline at YMML.
-235 ish V/S
That is really good for a 30 knot crosswind landing.
Woah that’s an awesome landing! Runway 34 at MEL always poses a challenge which you passed flawlessly
Nice, looks like you were about to land on the 1,000 foot markers. Right in the touchdown zone, with those winds that’s a great approach. Nice pics as well!
Nice photos! Nothing better than a crosswind with an A350 in the beautiful Vietnam Airlines livery!
Why is the rudder deflecting left? Surely it would be straight for the approach, and then right rudder to correct for the crosswind on touch-down.
Presuming the crosswind is from the left.
I agree with @MaksimFerguson. The rudder should help straighten the plane.
Yes, you would give right rudder, not left. Left in that situation would only make it worse.
