  1. What’s spectacular about this?
    Just a normal crosswinds landing IMHO.
    Any professional pilot knows how to handle this.

  2. Flew to Hawaii once during worst windstorm in years which had closed HNL. Landing at Kauai we flew at a 45 degree angle to the runway to land. No one told us what was happening so we expected the worst. But we were already beat from 5 hours of winds so bad the plane’s tail seemed to come around in front.
