Foggy crosswind landing into Liverpool

Recommended Posts

The good old 'Shed' coming into Liverpool on a foggy afternoon with a 20 knot crosswind and trying to avoid a bird strike. Dunno if it is intentional on the part of the developers of this FS version's flight model, but it seems to be strongly affected by a crosswind, which with those big slab sides, is likely to be the case on the real thing. I know the real thing can lean over at quite an angle when on the ground with a crosswind hitting it...

Nice shots. Nice plane.

 

Sure miss those USAir Shorts 360s passing over the house here. All replaced by Dash-8s.

Rode in one of those danged things once.  Yeah, we had to go around at O'hare.  Yeah, too much wind.  Not sorry to see it gone.
