Crosswind landings a snap
This video is a basic overview of proper techniques for successful crosswind landings. One thing I always remember from this is, don't push it! If it doesn't look good or feel right, go around or move on to another field as Martha said. A little inconvenience is a lot cheaper than a bent airplane and fractured People.

See there is nothing to it!!.
As always John makes it look so effortless - I just watched this video a couple of times and will go out to practice cross-wind landings tomorrow. Sure the technique John explains that "just enough bank angle to compensate for the drift caused by the cross-wind component of the wind AND just enough rudder pressure to keep the nose centered on the runway" should deliver the results - only to be experienced tomorrow!!!...
