747 Crosswind Landing at Hong Kong's "Kai Tak" Airport

[yt] Filmed from the checkerboard used for the approach into Kai Tak. Overshoots and then lines it up just to get caught in the wind...again. Unedited. You can hear another enthusiast in the background with a scanner. A Japan Air Lines JAL Boeing 747

seems perfectly aligned at first but gets caught by the crosswind just as it's about to touch the runway and burns the tires on landing, skidding sideways. stops pretty quick, too
