There's some interesting crosswind landings at BHX in this clip.

The Birmingham runway heading is just one degree different from that at Leeds and I've seen some scary landings there. It can be a bit of a problem with a runway heading of 33/15 when the strong winds tend to be westerly 250 degrees or in layman terms straight across the runway. In the clip you posted you can hear the pilot say "we'll give it one more attempt and then it's off to East Midlands".

TNT Boeing 737-300F emergency landing filmed by the West Mids police helicopter.

[video]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYKDPnjwUSE[/video]


Investigators have disclosed that the TNT Airways Boeing 737-300 freighter which conducted an apparent gear-up landing at Birmingham Airport, UK last month had actually lost its right main undercarriage during a failed attempt to land at Nottingham a few minutes earlier.

Owing to poor weather at London Stansted, following a flight from Liege, Belgium on 15 June, the aircraft had diverted to Nottingham East Midlands Airport and was carrying out a Category IIIA approach to runway 27 at around 05:40, reports the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB).

About 1nm (1.8km) from touchdown the aircrafts approach became unstable, after a momentary disconnection and re-engagement of the autopilot. The 737 rose above the glideslope, before descending rapidly and deviating to the left of the centreline.

Although the crew began a go-around the aircraft landed heavily on grass to the left of the runway threshold the impact tearing off the right main landing-gear and causing damage to the right inboard flaps, wing-fuselage fairing, hydraulic system and the rear freight hold door.

Despite the damage, and although the aircrafts outer wing and starboard engine contacted the ground, the 737 managed to become airborne again. The crew declared an emergency and diverted to Birmingham, where weather conditions were good, touching down on runway 33 at 06:02.

With its right main-gear absent, the aircraft came to rest on its starboard engine. Neither of the two crew members of the 737-300, a 19-year old example registered OO-TND, was injured.

The Monarch A320 landing near the end of the video looks a bit scary.

I tried a quick video of the windy landings this afternoon. It's not great, but at least I got one done!

Lack of zoom in/out due to me using my 300mm lens!

It's a nice video and very good for a first try. My camera does video too but I've never tried it.
