American Airlines Battles the Crosswinds

You can’t tell in these photos but this aircraft and every other that passed directly over me on approach this morning were cocked a bit sideways as they approached the runway. As you may have already read on this blog, the valley has been in a strong wind event for two days now as a powerful low pressure system makes itself known. I commend every pilot everywhere for having the skills and confidence to take on the crosswinds. So much responsibility! And the balls to do such a thing. Much more to come!
