That 747 at Kansai is one of my favorites. balls.

My father will happily tell the story of the time he and his flight instructor decided the crosswinds in Amarillo were such that they were going to divert, but then they got to listening on the radio, and they saw another instructor with a more advanced pilot, and then they circled overhead as the dude landed a Cessna 172 on the runway by coming at it perpendicular, feathering, cutting the engine and drifting in to land 90 degrees off of the stripes.

Here's a Mooney landing at Courchevel because it's Courchevel.
