    That is so tragic! Hate to see it run over and over too.

    There seem to be plenty of similar telephoto videos for this airport, taken from south-southwest of the runway, not far off axis. I'm suspecting that it was taken from nearby hilly terrain, the topo maps suggest that is possible.

    Being in Boeing's back yard, I had opportunity to see numerous film and video of various tests long before YouTube was invented. Yes, those crosswind landings at the certification limits are amazing.

    I have learned the twice on Airbus A319 and similar. First time was great, firm touchdown and curve braking but, meh!

    Second time the island was shrouded in very low status. As the are no precision instrument landing systems, Portuguese aviation law will only allow 2 unsuccessful visual (hands-on) approaches before mandatory diversion. In my case it was all the way back to Portugal to try again next day.

    I was on the last flight allowed to land at the Ontario, California airport one time before it was closed at the beginning of a Santa Ana wind condition. It was unnerving to be looking down the runway from my passenger seat as the Boeing 737 approached pointing into the wind and not at the runway. The pilot did a wonderful job of turning the plane the last few seconds before touchdown.

    I've never been able to do it that smoothly on my flight simulator.

    Looks worse than it is, but usually involves kicking off the drift over the threshold and in the flare. Only done it myself in gliders operating on a short runway, but same applies to flight simulator on a computer.

    Ontario CA was the place where as pax I saw a luggage wagon being blown towards plane I was in. Followed by a few handlers who were running faster than they ever thought possible. Happy ending. Collision would probably had higher repair costs than to your car.

    Seems likely that whoever let the wagon go free got some serious scolding. All in days before quick handheld video was possible. Oh well.

    I actually live 6 miles due north of Ontario Airport but fortunately about 2 miles outside of what we call "the wind tunnel" that goes from the Cajon Pass straight over the airport. It is often very calm here while the wind is blowing 60-80 mph over there.
