Pilots Battle Strong Winds In OKC And Nail The Landing

You know that feeling you have when you nail a crosswind landing? That's what the crew of this ExpressJet flight into Oklahoma City felt like last week.

With winds gusting up to 41 knots last Wednesday in OKC, this was no walk in the park. But the crew flew it all the way to the runway, with a nice rudder kick out at the very end.
