How Windy??

How windy do you think this is? the 2nd or 3rd landing is awsome.

Outrageous!!!! That's not an aeroplane, it's a bloody helicopter in diguise. But agreed, I know Huskies are STOL but it must have been windy.

Reminds one of the old,old gag about the new pilot who was asked "How was your last landing?", he replies "Oh fine, the runway was a bit short but boy, was it wide"

I think it is probably a video that had been in the making for a while, weather pending! Check the reg on G-INFO and it is registered to Aviat Aircraft UK. So we are probably talking company pilot and lots of time on type and a large helping of weather. Check the trousers on the Yellow vest man, blowing like a force nine i would have guessed. Mind you the thing taxiid cross wind extremely well and i didnt notice much aileron into wind either??
Still must agree it is very impresive flying.

Anyone remember a bit of film some years back of a Caribou (or similar) trying to do an ultra short landing (Farnborough?) which went horribly wrong at about 50 feet?
I think on impact the wings fell off!:

That's the one!!!!
Wind gradient? At least the crew got away with it.
Any landing that you walk away from.........

But the aircraft wasn't reusable, so I guess it wan't a great one
