These days have brought strong winds to Western Europe. We have seen numerous crosswind landings in Amsterdam, London, Berlin and Dublin, but the case presented below is special.
The pilots activated the reversers before landing
The pilots of a Boeing 737-800 Ryanair aircraft activated the engine reversers prior to the touchdown. The plane was in the process of landing on the crosswind at London Stansted.
It is the first time I see this procedure under such conditions. Did the pilots activate the reversers correctly? What do you think?
According to the images, the aircraft landed without problems in strong wind gusts.
