Travel Caught on camera: Terrifying moment KLM plane banked sharply just a few feet over runway as pilots struggled to land in high windsThis is the hair-raising moment a KLM passenger jet banked sharply moments before it landed in the middle of a violent storm in Amsterdam.

Certainly autoland or remote piloting could be used. Results might differ'somewhat'.
Results might differ 'somewhat'. Damn, FA has got to give us that sarcasm font.
On the serious side, I hope Boeing stays with it's assist philosophy rather than replace, like Airbus. On Boeing FBW, the pilot still has the feel because the computer just assists the movement like hydraulics did, rather than replace it. Just like keeping the stick/yoke on the 787. I have Airbus drivers as friends that swear by that joystick and how the Bus drives. I guess this discussion will go on forever like Ford & Chevy.
Don't take this the wrong way its just my opinion. This was a good crosswind landing but I feel if the pilot would have slowed down just a little and put the nose more into the crosswind he wouldn't have been rocking as much as he was. But like I said its just my opinion.
Also the maximum crosswind and headwind landing via Auto land is 25Knots of wind. Over that the pilot must take control in landing in head wind and crosswind landings.
I don't but this is what we get from the outside with no wind or anything. It's just all speculation. Now, had he had an incident on landing, such as a gear snap or something, and scattered stuff all over the runway, we might've had more detail. LOL
I hear you. I'm not saying he was way over speed. I am just thinking 5knots lower and a more right nose into the wind as he kept turning right would have made for a better landing. I'm not saying the pilots where's trained well and the wind probably snuck up on them so they did a good job landing the plane and also putting the landing gear closer to the crosswind down first which is what is supposed to happen. I'm not saying I'm better then these pilots not worse but it's just my opinion what I feel I would have done is all. Anyways preacher we should email sometime you seem pretty Kool to chat with or in are case debate LOL.
Well, I think the wind snuck upon him a bit and that was an Oh S%^& moment. I expect he felt better when he saw it was down an had weight on wheels. LOL firstname.lastname@example.org
gimme that thrust reverse and let's stop this heifer. LOL
Lol yes please. Once he noticed the landing gear on the runway the rudder was all he had to use really and it's better on the runway in crosswinds. Have you seen the 777 crosswind landing on YouTube where the pilots landed sideways??
I am sure they can automatic arm. 757/767 can. You arm them, and when you pull throttles, when weight gets back on wheels and you power up, they are there. Pilot option.Don't know if he had them set or not.
You can arm them on the 777-300er as soon as the plane has ample weight steady on the back landing gears if they are armed will pop up auto with or without reverse thrust but it has to be on landing. It has to do with a sensor detecting the landing.
Yeah, it's all keyed to weight on wheel's. Of course in unknown times, you may want to manually arm in order to have complete control. Just another case of FLYING THE PLANE. I'm fixing to send you an attachment.
One thing I tell people. I'm gonna be ahead of my plane no matter what I'm always about 5 minutes ahead of it. I also try to prepare for landings well in advance and be prepared for anything that can be thrown at me. It maybe a little slow on landing but sometikes slower isn't always bad.
Slower gives you thinking time. You sound like someone that has some big iron behind you.
This right here is why we need human brains in the front.
