  1. That is a great video of the United Express flight landing in OKC. Thanks for not making any comments about the landing being particularly reckless or dangerous as some might assume. Airline Transport Pilots on US carriers, even regional carriers, have had a minimum of several thousand takeoffs and landings (actual and simulated) in all kinds of weather conditions in many types of aircraft. The technique for landing in a crosswind is very simple, is applicable to all fixed-wing aircraft, and was first learned in the earliest stages of flight training. Watching an airline pilot land in a crosswind is almost like watching a race car driver parallel park a sedan.

    My question is who shot the video?
