Crosswinds at Dusseldorf airport

Because it is Friday and I can’t seem to get anything done as I await the quarter final match between Germany and Greece (so called “bailout battle” at Euro Cup 2012). Btw, should Greece win the match they should get a blank cheque from Ms Merkel (It is also kind of neat that the two men leading the battle with the Germans both on and off the pitch are both named Samaras).

Anyway, back to Dusseldorf…. Being an absolute fan of air travel I found the mad skills of these pilots who land and take off under scary conditions to be pretty cool.
