    Wow. Reminds me of video of the KE 747 cargo crosswind landing at the old Kai Tak.

    Apart from the absence of sea at the end of the runway, looks like a normal day at WLG.

    I'm guessing it has more to do with the number of people who would've been involved in that accident than the possibility of the accident. (Not to detract from your comment that I did get a chuckle out of)

    I agree! Still very nice landing Captain. Earn those stripes on your shoulder.
