My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now; put out every one:
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods:
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

I like it :)  Although its fin is still smaller than the Tornado's :D

Cross wind landings gotta be a BITCH! :o  :o  :o

But at least it has enough rudder to try and crab it.

Actually, what makes crosswind landings hard is the width of the undercarriage track.  The wider it is, the easier it is.  

And you can always negate some of the crosswind effect by coming in faster with less flaps!

But I agree, more than enough rudder on that thingie!

Actually, Ollie...what makes crosswind landings difficult is the wind !

Nope, the wind shouldn't be a factor.  A competent pilot cares not about the wind.

Aircraft configuration will make them tricky.  A heavier airplane will really help you too!!

Where is Alvis when we need him?  He'd have this done in a couple of days, tops!

I dunno, Ollie.  I read this little bit on landing and the presence of wind, crosswind or otherwise, sure seems to complicate matters!  I guess that's why the weather reports from airports always include windspeed and wind direction.

All looks difficult and confusing to me!

Hehehe...good one !

Must be Canadian, to actually GET A JOKE !!!!!

And Ollie..........I don't fly, but I'd bet that a 60 knot crosswind matters a heck of alot more than at 10 knots ! ;)

You know, coming in to land vertically, even if you have your nose into the wind, is much harder than doing a conventional landing on a runway with plenty of speed.

I should know, I tried that in the R-22.
