Wow! Hard landing
Q B
That's express right there
John McArthur
Load shift!
Donald Pungowiyi
Where is the center wheel that's in between the main landing gear
rwb2112
I think only the -30s and -40s had the center main gear

Crazi!
David Parry
Now, that's correct crosswind technique in action! - Some "Heavy" pilots just tend to land still holding drift and give the landing gear some serious abuse.
jack duffy
must have been an exiting ride for the pilot's!
Jesse Carroll
How many button holes where cut on this one? Great job!
jet4ang

DC-10-10 and above have center main gear.
Patrick Sullivan
The reason there is no signature middle landing gear is that was a feature on the later DC10 series 30 and series 40 aircraft only. N368FE is a DC-10-10F early model 10 series so will not have it. (my comment is to answer Doug Panguwiyi's question and correct Greg Davis slight misinfo). RWB2112 got it right.
VladHusky
Oh, my. Surprised he didn't lose a wingtip!
sam kuminecz
Fedex having a flashback to the incident in Narita?
Jim Newton
With the rudder deflection, must have been a difficult crab attempt.
WB2LDJ
You're presuming the runway, that may be the service road.
Wow! Amazing shot!

Isaac Vogelzang
No, Gianni. This was just a landing in a hard crosswind.
n9341c
Whoopsie.
Brian Tyre
Wow! that's all I can comment..
is 40 knot a strong wind? sorry for my ignorance.
Andrew C
Amazing!

Looks... Fun
Caden Bell
nice!
Roger Curtiss
Way to earn that flight pay.

Fedex seems to be doing the potty dance.
HenMclean
with our breezy nor'westers this is what we see often at Wellington , NZ - on RWY 34 !
thegrump
Just occurred to me it would be really interesting to hitch a ride on a cargo flight. Not having a couple hundred nervous passengers in back probably means you can do some things that are perfectly safe, but would alarm passengers.
Erik Davis
Now that is a crosswind landing. Right wing dipped into the wind to hold it on centerline, using opposite rudder to hold the nose down the runway! Nice job by the flight crew!
