That's just jaw-dropping. I think I watched it about forty times.

First off, the cross wind was not that bad as evidenced by the wind sock in the background.  It looks to be about 15 knots.  I think this is more than likely a certification test or maybe a maximum demonstrated crosswind maneuver, which for that aircraft is around 24 knots.  It could also be pilot training on single engine maneuvers.  Either way, the aircraft was almost empty, no passengers and a light fuel load.  You would be surprised at some of the positions the aircraft has been in during the flight test I have conducted.  BUT, it is still fun to watch.

Sorry Louis, no offense meant towards your industry ;)
The techniques, though they play an important role in the early stage, should not be too restrictive, complex or mechanical. If we cling to them, we will become bound by their limitation.  Any technique, however worthy and desirable, becomes a disease when the mind is obsessed with it.

Isn't KaiTak pretty bad anyway? I mean, Hong Kong ain't that big; the rap is, on take off or landing, you're close enough to apartment buildings that you can look in the windows.
