Boeing 777 and 747SP Crosswind Landing Tests

Photo - Boeing 777 and 747SP Crosswind Landing Tests Information

Description: Video shows Boeing test pilots determining the demonstrated crosswind landing limits on the 777 and the 747SP. The engineers make educated guesses, but then the test crews have to go actually prove the numbers. They sneak off to Brazil to do these tests at a certain remote BAF airbase famous for its continual atrocious crosswinds. Should the gear sideloads be excessive and fold one up, there is nobody there to take nasty pix for the Airbus guys to wave around in the press.
