Classic examples of controlled sidelip technique versus kick-off drift-at-the-last-second-and-pray.
Guess which it is better to be a passenger in?

Good skill in both Lufty & Thai crews in extreme & gusty conditions. I'd be quite happy to fly with either.

Check out B52 crosswind landing thechnique for an even more extreme form of sideslip.
