First, I agree that it was difficult to land in bad wind...but aren't all a/c? There is a new member to the forums who may shed more light and personal experiance on these issues. I am glad to see at least one news agency use an actual crew member who has first hand knowledge of the aircraft in question to complete their article.

"On 20 February 2009, Northwest Airlines Flight 2 from Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, the Philippines (using Boeing 747-400 equipment), experienced severe turbulence during landing at Narita International Airport (east of Tokyo, Japan). All 408 passengers and 14 crew members landed safely; however, 50 people were injured; around five were hospitalized. Currently the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau is investigating the incident."
Is there something wrong at Narita?
