AMSTERDAM AIRPORT, NETHERLANDS – Watch this impressive so called ‘Crab Landing’ performed earlier this year by a Turkish Airlines pilot during a storm at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol in the Netherlands. A Crab Landing is often used when there is a very strong crosswind on touchdown, especially during a storm. As a result the airplane tracks towards the upwind edge of the runway while de-crabbing to align with the runway. Immediate upwind aileron is needed to ensure the wings remain level, while rudder is needed to track center line.
