In the video, an Emirates airline A380 can be seen wobbling in the wind as it approaches the runway. Then the double-decked jetliner makes a hard landing, appearing to make a quick bounce before swerving back and forth as it gains traction on the runway.
“I have filmed a few thousand crosswind landings at several airports in Europe within the past years, but this Airbus A380 crosswind landing was extremely hard and extraordinary,” Cargospotter wrote in a post accompanying the video.
“At first it looked like a pretty normal crosswind approach but after touchdown the pilots tried to align with the runway which looked pretty incredible. I have never seen such a tremendous reaction of an airplane after a touchdown. You can see that the pilots tried to align with the runway by using the tail rudder and luckily it worked out,” Cargospotter added.
