Okay, thanks! I don't know about airplanes, just that I *hate* it when the wind rocks my little crossover SUV
In the case of aircraft speed is actually a good thing when encountering turbulence because the predominant effect will be that of the airstream, not the turbulence. Unfortunately it's not an option when you're landing.
Seems like people don't always know to slow down when it's very windy. Or icy, for that matter. Just b/c you have awd or 4wd doesn't mean you can let loose.
Someone get that pilot a beer. Hell, most folks can't save their cars when things get squirrelly, can't imagine a plane that size. I have been in planes that have had to "crab" for the landing, not sure if any were quite like that though.
