When you only have one runway, you don't always get to land into the wind...

Was probably a computer controlled landing, because they came down dead center on the runway and stayed there even through all that twisting and turning.

Throw some Eurobeat on there and you'd have a perfect drifting video.

The computer really must of over-corrected then. That was a lot of swinging back and forth just to get straightened up. Either that or the wind was gusting in spots making things unpredictable. That IS a very large and heavy aircraft. It almost looks like a drunken flying whale just trying to flop it's body down on the ground. It does make one wonder about the stresses on that landing gear however. You can see it bend sideways just a little bit when the plane slews. :o
