Alleged 'unsafe landing' according to the media!

Saw this was doing the 'rounds' today on social media.

This landing is perfectly safe.  The pilot is dealing with cross winds and that is what he/she are trained to do. When you watch this, you might think differently but this is what they are trained to deal with. Had the landing been outside 'safe limits' they would have taken off again and performed a 'go around' as we call it.

Here is the clip.  Please watch it and remember, commercial pilots are trained to land with cross winds like this.

Take care
