Hey there everyone, I have returned with a lot of strength after being distanced from this forum for a while!
Now I’m looking for some EXTREME LANDINGS you have done!
Due to: Wind, Airport Length, Visibility… or other factors!
Mine was this one:
Yesterday around 30-40 knots of crosswind on landing in a TBM north of London. I had a group flight with @Franksaviation515 he has some pictures of it too :). It was a great flight saw all of London airports.
I was approaching KIAD a few months back with 40+ knot crosswinds, I believe. I could barely control my A320 without going way off localizer and glideslope, and I slammed the aircraft on the runway at -750 fpm. 🤭
I was flying on expert to St. John’s in Canada (CYYT). I was flying over the Atlantic in the A318 and I had a fuel miscalculation 🤦♂️ I had to divert to my nearest airport which was CYYT. It was 2 degrees Celsius. The crosswind was about 35kts and the visibility was less than 1km. Here’s some screenshots.
Mine was last week when Kai Tak was the featured airport of the day but somehow and someway i made the approach into Kai Tak correctly without crashing and there was about 7 knots of crosswind which made it even more challenging.
Mine was yesterday, heavy storms came through Fort Lauderdale about 5pm EST sand winds were 20kts gusting 40kts went into a holding off Freeport bahamas and then landed with visbility less than a mile and winds at 10 gusting to 30
I was doing an approach at UUEE and all of a sudden there were 90+ nts crosswind! And I was only in an a320. The first try I had to go around and then the second time I managed to land but I was skidding everywhere on the runway. 😂😂😂
