Incident: HS 748, G-BIUV, Dublin Airport, 3 Jan 1998: Report No 1998-012

SYNOPSIS

The aircraft was operating on a scheduled cargo flight from Liverpool to Dublin Airport. The pilot flying (PF) had approximately 30 hours experience on type and was undergoing Line Training. Runway 28 (8650 ft), which was clearly visible on the extended approach, was selected for landing. There was moderate turbulence and the surface wind given by ATC was 240/22, gusting to 40 kts. The PF elected to use 22º of flap for landing because of the turbulence and crosswind, rather than the normal full flap selection. The pilot not flying (PNF), who was operating in his capacity as a Line Training Captain, concurred with this decision and also said that the crosswind given was well within the limits of the aircraft. The flying limitations in the company"s Operations Manual give the maximum crosswind for landing as 30 kts.
