Boeing 707 Crosswind Landing

Want to see some action? Have a look at the video! Here, Boeing test pilots shows off max crosswind landing performance. A crosswind landing is a landing manoeuvre in which a significant component of the prevailing wind is perpendicular to the runway centerline. Tex Johnson rolls the 707 prototype, and the incredible Bob Hoover does things that no one else can do - without Crashing the Plane! Just incredible! Enjoy. Link

First of all, this is a test of the 777 and 747-400, not the 707. Secondly, that video is sped up quite a bit. search "777 crosswind landing" on youtube to find the original
