Boeing 737 CL take-off with an extreme crosswind at Antalya Airport

Take-off in a crosswind might not seem to be a big deal, but if a pilot does not add a certain correction, a plane might end up skipping down, or off, the runway. Without a correction, an upwind wing might lift off too early and then the wind might send the aircraft towards the edge of the runway. How to cope with such a situation is demonstrated by two pilots – volunteers in the video.
