Is this from Cargo Road? Awesome capture!
Yee Haa!
Jose Felipe
Wow! Hard landing
That's express right there
John McArthur
Load shift!
Donald Pungowiyi
Where is the center wheel that's in between the main landing gear
I think only the -30s and -40s had the center main gear
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!
Full left rudder to the bone! Great shot!
Elizabeth Hall

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.
Oh, my. Surprised he didn't lose a wingtip!

Fedex having a flashback to the incident in Narita?
Jim Newton
With the rudder deflection, must have been a difficult crab attempt.
You're presuming the runway, that may be the service road.
Wow! Amazing shot!
AWESOME DC10 love em back in there time they were the most advanced jet in thee era over the 747B
baldman man

Is that plane about to crash
gianni ciampa

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

Looks... Fun

Way to earn that flight pay.

Fedex seems to be doing the potty dance.
with our breezy nor'westers this is what we see often at Wellington , NZ - on RWY 34 !
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!
Alain Kwiat
Well done!
