Wind gusts caused some crosswind landings at Düsseldorf today. Especially shortly before touchdown most airplanes were caught by some wind gusts. The Airbus A321 at the beginning had to initiate a go around and attempted another approach about 10 minutes later. You can see the wind gusts hitting the Airbus shortly before go around.
The pilots of the Airbus A380 were forced to work a lot with the rudder to align the massive Airbus with the runway. The landing of the A380 was a perfect example for a skilled crosswind landing. Don` t know why but these crosswind landings are still breathtaking in my opinion. It` s always a pleasure to watch these skilled pilots do their job. I just hope no one needed a barf bag after these roller coaster rides
