• Airbus A340 Aircraft Damaged In Crosswind Landing

  • in strong gusting crosswind conditions, the aircraft began to drift to the right of the runway extended centreline. At the moment of touchdown, the aircraft was drifting to the right, its heading was some 10º to the left of its track and its roll attitude was approximately 3.5º right wing low. These factors resulted in the tyres of the two outer wheels of the right main landing gear making firm contact with the right edge line of the designated runway surface.
