    One: you don't do crosswind landings that way: your approach would be in side-slip or "crab approach" (rudder to the right or left - depends on the wind)

    Two: Your wings would be "against the wind" (depends on the wind)Three: your flaps would be full down (unless you LOVE flapless landings, like me!)

    Four: not sure of the picture, but the runway SEEMS to be BEHIND de piano keys!  So... must be a take off!

    In short: a Photoshop image made up by someone who NEVER flew a plane!

    Source(s): On my first solo (30 years ago!), on a PA-38, I landed with a 38 kts crosswind... over the envelope of the plane! And flapless!!! Approach on side-slipping at more than 30º...

    Neither. It's flying the wrong way, if it's flying. Those are landing stripes under it and the runway is behind it.

      "landing stripes" are called "Piano keys" :-D

    I see no flaps. It's in trouble however you look at it.

      Can't see them either... but that's not IMPOSSIBLE (forgotten, failure or pilot "decision")

    This is what they call, "Flying by the seat of your pants" flying. Any landing that you walk away from, alive, is a good landing.

    Neither.  It's a computer generated simulation. NOT a photo of a REAL airplane.

      No!  Computer simulators DON'T make these mistakes!

    Definitely PS faked, the rudder should be swung out to compensate for the cross wind.

    Neither. It's photoshop. Flaps are not deployed in either TO or landing configurations.

      Starrysky: Agreed...  But landing flaps up is not THAT rare!  I know the landing you are talking about; it was on "aircraft disasters" not long ago: mechanical: a bolt prevented the extendion...
