B-52 Stratofortress Crosswind Landing

The B-52 was built with the capability to swiveling landing gear, enabling the massive bomber to come in for a landing crabbed into the wind, with wings level. Due to the sheer length of the bomber’s wings, rolling the aircraft during approach risks a wingtip hitting the ground.

The pilot dials in the heading of the runway, aligning the gear to that heading, despite the aircraft swiveling to the left or right. B-52’s have been known to make such extreme crosswind approaches that pilots have reported looking out the side windows in order to view the oncoming runway.
