Last Saturday, Winterstorm Harper crossed the USA from the Pacific Coast in an easterly direction. Dallas Fort Worth canceled a dozen flights, but The old Delta 747 Captain, having 25.000 Flight Hours logged in his book, just thought:" Where is here the storm?? Thats just a light breeze!." …and buttered the 747 on RWY 35C
Crosswind Factor: 42 Knots
Forward Ground Speed Loss: 18
But the 747 has very big Rudder :) Just use it !
