Miami Arrival

Landing an airplane is one of the most challenging aspects of flying. Sure, there is the old pilot adage that, “any landing you walk away from was a good one.” I prefer nice, smooth landings. The following video shows a nice landing in crosswind conditions. Captain Randy Masters of American Airlines is at the controls.

That’s the way it’s done. Of course, conditions make it difficult at times. That’s why I’m always impressed at the abilities of most commercial pilots. It’s not easy landing a plane with a couple of hundred people on board. My hat goes off to them.
