Did we land?…Or we were shot down?

A Swiss BAe 146/Avro RJ made a rough landing at London City Airport, slamming onto the runway under what appear to be extreme crosswind conditions. The 48-second video then shows the regional jet skidding and bouncing to a stop.

Surrounded by buildings, London City is known for its steep approach angle of 5.5 degrees, compared with the standard 3-degree glideslope. The runway is less than 3,500 feet long and requires special aircraft type and pilot-certification to operate there. The pilot of this jet may be up for a refresher.
