yeah. i had a few adventures with cross-winds in the smaller aircraft flying from LCY. there used to be a nice compilation on youtube which i couldn't find again. here's another:

However - I must have flown from there 100 times but I have always been lucky that I have not experienced a bad landing due to wind.
A friend of mine flew in and had a landing like DP posted - he refuses to fly from there again as he said he was one of the most scary rides of his life
Amazing, as I can honestly say that at least 40% of my landings were like those shown in the video clip, ie, with the wings dipping from side to side just before landing. However, I was always flying in the little KLM twin prop aeroplanes ... the first couple of landings scared the crxp out of me but I soon got used to it!
