Scary landing....

Didnt think 20 mph winds could do that to a plane so large.

The article says strong winds and 20mph crosswind.

Surely they can't be the same thing. I mean 20mph? A bit of a breeze.

In high crosswinds the procedure is to approach at an angle.  The size of this aricraft just makes it look more dramatic.
