Watch This Passenger Jet Make a Sideways Landing

A YouTuber who films aviation videos posted a clip of a Boeing 757 LANDING SIDEWAYS while battling the winds in Bristol, England.  The pilot did it because planes have to point their nose into the direction of where the wind is coming from.


TUI pilot absolutely nails SIDEWAYS landing in 40-knot crosswinds at Bristol Airport

Strong winds blowing directly across the runway at Bristol Airport yesterday (12th October 2018) due to Storm Callum caused this TUI Airways Boeing 757-200 aircraft to come in nearly sideways. Aircraft need to compensate for the crosswind otherwise they will be blown off course, they do this by pointing their nose into the direction the wind is coming from, demonstrated perfectly by this crew.
