Just Look How Much Airplane Wings Flex in Crosswinds

By Jamie Condliffe on at

Landing in a crosswind can be terrifying, but just watch this video and see how much the wings of a Boeing 767 flex during severe turbulence. It's... disconcerting to say the least.

The video shows a 767 landing at Birmingham Airport in the UK this past week, during the recent storms. Crosswinds reached 35 knots; wings flexed; pants were crapped. [YouTube]
