Doesn't look like much of a typhoon to me. Maybe a stout crosswind but that is about it.

Wow... Why would you even want to risk something like that???

Looks impressive, but it's just crabbing into wind. I wouldn't mind betting the crosswinds were on the plane's (or Captain's) limits, though.

787 has proven to be an amazing performer.

That plane is gonna need a new set of tires. And get the Co-Pilot a new set of undershorts while you are at it. :)
