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.
