Airplanes Landing In Strong Crosswind Conditions

A Thomson Airways Boeing 767 encounters a 35-knot (~65km/h) crosswind during landing at Birmingham airport (BHX).

The pilots (and the landing gear) handle it pretty nicely.

It would be interesting to know how it felt for the passengers.

Here's a few more from user Flugsnug's Youtube channel:

And also a go-around performed by an Emirates Boeing 777.
I admit I had heard of this procedure, but hadn't really ever seen one.

In the end, after two failed attempts at landing in Birmingham, they decided to head to Gatwick.
