STORM Friederike!! TURBOPROP CROSSWIND Landings during an ORCAN at DüsseldorfThe Turboprop pilots had to fight with wind gusts up to 70 knots and some of these airplanes were thrown around like light feathers in the wind. I am pretty sure the passengars of these flights will probably remember these flights for a long time. I decided to edit another video of yesterdays crosswind situation to focus on the small Dash-8 turboprob plane which definitly had some issues with the wind speeds. Some of them had to approach three times until they finally manged to land. It` s incredible to see how skilled some of these pilots are and this video definitly proves why pilots are definitly not overpaid. Great job!
