That's interesting Tracer... The DC-8 has a pretty good crab angle coming over the threshold. I noticed in the following image the trees aren't leaning, so maybe the air is different a little lower. :)

Had to snag a few screen scrapes...

Stavenger is over in Norway and a quick look shows water on three sides - so wind could definitely be a factor!
