Friday aviation video

For the weekend, crosswind landings:

I particularly like the vortices trailing off the vertical stabilizer around 1:20, and the Korean Airlines 747-400 maneuvering around 1:40.
Oddly enough, videos of computer simulated flight seem to be a somewhat popular phenomenon on YouTube, attracting tens of thousands of views. Watching a simulated landing at St. Maarten's airport (94,000 views) seems far less cool than watching the real thing, but so it is.
