Plane makes impressive landing in stormy weather

Landing a passenger plane full of people while being buffeted from all sides by stormy weather must be up there as one of the most stressful jobs in existence.
On Saturday, one KLM plane made a particularly wobbly landing in high winds - but the pilot kept their cool to land it safely.
The plane is clearly being rocked by the wind and is buffeted from side to side as it approaches the runway.
But the pilot brings the wheels down and manages to land smoothly on the tarmac at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport.

It looks hair-raising from the ground, so imagine how terrifying it must have been for the passengers on the plane.

Paris Air Show 2015: Airbus, Boeing Battle It Out At World's Oldest Aviation Event

Indonesia’s flag carrier Garuda Indonesia on Monday committed to purchasing up to 60 Boeing jets and also signed a letter of intent with Airbus for the purchase of 30 A350 aircraft, even as the rival planemakers geared up to sell hundreds of jets at the latest edition of the Paris Air Show. The world’s oldest air show, being held at the Le Bourget airport, officially began Monday.
Garuda's purchase of the Boeing jets would supplement the airline's $4.9 billion order for 50 737 MAX 8 jetliners signed in October, and provide "additional capability and superior economics," Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said, in a statement released Monday. 
Meanwhile, Airbus, which received an order for the purchase of 30 A350 XWB aircraft from the Indonesian carrier -- in addition to an order of 60 Airbus A320neo aircraft from GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) -- increased its 20-year forecast for jet demand by nearly 4 percent on Monday.
“According to Airbus’ Global Market Forecast, global passenger traffic will grow at an average 4.6 percent a year, driving a need for some 32,600 new aircraft above 100 seats worth US$4.9 trillion,” the company said, in a statement issued at the air show. “By 2034, passenger and freighter fleets will more than double from today’s 19,000 aircraft to 38,500.”
The forecast comes just days after a similar announcement by Boeing, when the American planemaker raised its 20-year outlook by about 1,000 jet deliveries to 38,000 planes valued at $5.6 trillion.
The MAX and neo are the latest, upgraded versions of the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 respectively, making them the focal points of the rivalry between two of the world’s largest airplane manufacturers.
During the air show, Boeing and Airbus expect to secure at least 220 orders -- valued at nearly $23 billion -- for competing narrow-body jets, Bloomberg had earlier reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

Airbus Helicopters H160 Enters Flight-test Phase

The Airbus Helicopters H160 medium twin made its first flight on Saturday, June 13, at Marignane Airport, where the manufacturer has its headquarters. The helicopter took off at 9:30 a.m. and the flight, mostly hovering, lasted almost 20 minutes. Two flight-test engineers were on board, along with test pilot Olivier Gensse. “We felt virtually no vibration; this is very promising,” Gensse said. The first ground run took place on May 27.

Pratt & Whitney Canada PW210 engines powered the first flight but they will be replaced, late this year or early next year, with Turbomeca Arranos. The latter will be the only production engine for the H160, since Pratt &Whitney Canada decided not to pursue a growth version of the 1,100-shp class PW210E, leaving the choice to the 1,100- to 1,300-shp Arrano. “This has not changed the schedule for us,” Philippe Couteaux, Turbomeca's executive v-p of strategy and development, told AIN.
Between January and March, Airbus Helicopters started using two new kinds of iron bird to smooth the development of the helicopter. The dynamic integration testbed, dubbed “dynamic helicopter zero” (DHC0), has been designed to ensure the maturity of the flight control system, rotors, drive shafts, gearboxes and engines (initially the PW210E), among other things. It will continue to be used during the flight-test and certification phase. Turbomeca has already delivered Arranos for DHC0.
The system integration testbed, called “System helicopter zero” (SHC0), comprises electric and hydraulic systems and is also a tool for flight-deck development, Gensse explained.
Airbus plans to begin delivering the 12,000- to 13,000-pound mtow H160 in 2018.
