This film features several aircraft taking off and landing into
crosswinds on Leeds bradford Airport's runway 32 between 14:45 and 15:45 on
Tuesday 2nd February, 2016. The wind effect is most apparent upon those
aircraft which are landing and are having to fly with their noses 45 degrees
into the wind to counteract the crosswind effect. This manoeuvre requires much
skill  on behalf of the pilots and
is known as 'crabbing'. This film is a testimony to the great skills exhibited
by the pilots and crew of the aircraft at Leeds Bradford Airport today.

Featured flights in the film are as follows: British Airways BA1343 to
London Heathrow; Jet2 repositioning EXS32E from Edinburgh; Ryanair FR2333 from
Krakow; Naljets private business jet, unknown destination; Aer Lingus EI3394
from Dublin; FlyBE BE735 from Belfast City; and Jet2 LS347 to Dusseldorf.

Featured aircraft are: Airbus A320, Boeing 737, Cessna Citation Excel,
ATR 72-600, and a Bombardier Dash-8 Q400.
