Yea, we could complain ... or go into free flight and set your airport to Keflavik, Iceland.Set the wind out of 210 degrees at 70 knots.Now, try to land your 747.Here's someone doing it for real in an Airbus A380:http://youtube.com/watch?v=GHrLB_mlir4

WOW! Awesome landing. It is quite a sight to see a large aircraft like that crabbing into the wind and realigning to the runway at the last second to keep from blowing tires or worse. Not quite the same in FS as your license and your life are not on the line but still fun to try and dream of doing it for real. Also thanks to the OP for the Hongkong landing. I'm tempted to leave the Pacific Northwest and abroaden my horizons in FSX.

I just uploaded a YouTube video using that scenery and the Level D 767 landing in a stiff crosswind on runway 13. I'll post a link as soon as it goes live. This scenery makes the KAI TAK experience in FSX nothing short of GREAT! Thanks again. ron
