Scary Landing at O’Hare: High Winds Nearly Tip This Plane [Video]
Take a look at this video of a plane landing on Thursday O'Hare with the strong cross winds! Pretty incredible to see the plane coming in on that angle! I could only imaging being on that plane surrounded by passengers with white knuckling. Scary to say the least.
In the flight community, this type of landing is referred to as "crabbing" .... an actual taught (and acquired) technique/skill, necessary during crosswinds. Great work by the pilots.
High winds and major were reported at Chicago's airports because of high winds on Thursday.
