BOEING 747-8 (LX-VCI) - What a crummy day. 5-L 02-16-24. Arriving from LUX in rain/snow mix, visibility probably less than a 1/4 mile, ceiling probably about 250-300 feet. Just Nasty!

To see this photo reminds us of what it takes to successfully land in these conditions, the aircraft, the navigation equipment, and the pilot skills...remarkable!
A good to study aerodynamics in real-time.
