    It kills me to admit this, but...

    ... this was probably a retired Navy pilot with carrier experience.

    It's called "crab it and stab it". Not easy in an aircraft of that size.

    Interesting, I don't have a Face Book account so it's not thru that.

    The 20 minutes video is more of the same, a couple of attempts, definitely not on "Auto Pilot".

    When I was training 30 + years ago (for my pilots license) flying in a Cessna 152, my instructor showed me how to land in similar conditions.
    He'd land with ONE back wheel first (nose intentionally picked up and crabbed), slow it down more, then drop the second rear wheel, then the nose.


    Here's another with about the same crosswinds (You Tube):

    Re: It kills me to admit this, but...

    As the other planes ahead and behind must go around. That is skill, plane and simple. I remembered when I worked at the airport at LAS, on a real windy day, I would stand out on the ramp and watch the planes attempt to land. Some stick it and some go around. As part of aircraft certification, this is one of their requirements.

    I don't know if that was intentional but it's pretty funny
