Landing a weight shift in extreme cross wind

Extreme conditions with strong cross winds and rotor from nearby trees can become problematic in a Weight-shift Microlight. By publishing this video clip received from Noel McDonogh from Light Flight in the How-To section we are hoping to show you or remind you how vital it is to keep speed and center-line on the approach while touching down as slow as possible. Notice the amount of bar movement necessary to maintain direction of the runway in extreme turbulent conditions. Keep flying the plane close to the ground.

Another good example of an extreme landing can be seen in the following video from WS Rudolph
