Im actually from Washington and Boeing rocks, my dad worked for them also. And besides the test pilots get all the glory, remember? Boeing over Airbus any day, barnone.

As for the airstrip, I think it is Ebwards AFB, or your right it could be Moses lake. Actually I think it is Moses, But checkairman, are you sure its Edwards? I say it might be Moses Because alot of Boeing activity there. Just a thought.

d-a-m-b  cheesy  

Houghton11 - there's acutually been quite a few SP's built, check out Airliners.net or Planepictures.net for more... we actually have the Saudia Royal Flight -SP enroute right now back to IAH Houston Intercontinental!
And speaking of crosswinds, for most of this week we've been having a few days with some pretty heafty crosswinds (20kts-40kts sustained) forcing us to use runways that are normally restricted for takeoffs only, unless the pilots are gutzy enough to pull off tributes to that video!

I really have no clue what song it is but it goes well with the clip, makes the 747 and 777 even more graceful for such huge aircraft that they are. As for the airport it could be two different ones, my best guess is Moses lake and Edwards.

I'll try to email them to find out, and could anyone here translate what it says on the clip, I believe its spanish.

From the link to the flying club at the end, I figured it was Portuguese (the .br is for Brazil).  Looking around a bit I find this:

Translation:

It’s not every day that we find calm winds.
What do you do in these situations?
Fly.
One comes back to one's time in the Flying Club.
One remembers his instructors and makes a safe landing.
These pilots had certainly flown conventional aircraft.
Learn with the best ones…Flying Club.

Found the video posted on a site in 2001.
One poster wrote:
"Those were max demonstrated crosswind landings for certification. Shot at Palmdale and Edwards. You never see the rudder deflect until after touchdown like you would if it was a slip. The pilots were not allowed to 'kick the crab' so as to prove the aircraft was capable of a typical (in this case Brazillian) line guys mishandling of a crosswind landing.

How did I find that stuff?  I used the internet. <g>

Type some of the words into a search engine and you are rolling...

Google some of the Portuguese words (in quotes)
Look for an English translation

Google some of the lyrics (in quotes)

Use "boeing crosswind landing" (in quotes) in google and you'll get a disccussion over at simradar.com from '04 - which would have saved me some time in finding the translation.

I also find now a fs2004.com discussion from '05

I don't have the link to the 2001 discussion.

Here, I got curious and googled the words:

Portuguese landings aeroclub crosswind Palmdale

First hit in the list is the one you are looking for

Post from "single pilot" a few down the page.

I see it is a 2005 discussion.  My eye must have caught the poster's registration year (2001)
