Nice landing. Most modern airliners are certified to land in a crab. Not all airlines teach that method. We don't, we land in a slide slip or wing low, although we can accept about 5 degrees of crab.

I have been in our company jet landing like that...OK maybe not as much of an angle but it was sketchy. I'm glad we have some good pilots!
