March 1/08 Airbus A320 D-AIQP operating as Flight LH 044

On landing runway 23 Hamburg Germany, in very windy conditions, the aircraft was caught by a gust lifting its right wing up causing its left wingtip to strike the runway. Pilots were able to go-around for a 2nd safe landing on runway 33. Damage to leading edge and left winglet.

There is a video, but it is currently removed from YouTube.

I was in an aborted landing today at FLL, but not nearly as exciting.

It was just due to the fact that we were too close to the aircraft in front of us. Still kinda cool to do a low pass over the city and fly a tight pattern in a 737.

NBC called the pilots heroes. I can think of some others. What were they thinking?

Notes from a European Airbus Driver;

Wind was 290/33 gusts to 49 (time ~ 13:55)
happened on flight LH 044 (D-AIQP) a A320 from MUC
runway for landing 23 LOC-DME (ATIS gave no other option)
after g/a, pilots elected runway 33 also LOC-DME approach and landed safely...

Airbus recommeded limits;
T/O 29 kts gusting 38 kts
Ldg: 33 kts gusting 38 kts

for non-contaminated runways - goes down for flooded runways, snow, ice etc.

The crosswind limit is defined as the crosswind at which no pilot input is required in yaw until the nosewheel is down in a normal landing (same for any commercial jet). Yes you can land with more of a crosswind if you are a good pilot but you are exceeding the certified limit and will be hung in any aaib investigation that arises.

Probably goes something like this....

German ATC and Typical Cockpit chatter........then...

"Vas is Das!!?" "Schiessen, Schiessen"............


Anyways....

So If I'm to understand you correctly Rob...Any Landing where a Crab is required is Too Much of a Crosswind for the Airbus??
