My plane landed like this in Detroit a few Christmas's back and it scared the be-jesus out of me. There was a terrible crosswind over the runway and we had to come in sideways. Atleast I now know that its possible to land this way, I won't be so worried next time.

Hey pilots- is it just me, or are commerical jets a lot safer than they seem? (aside from the recent Greek tragedy ofcourse). I mean, how much turbulence can one of those birds take before the wings are ripped off?
