Terrifying Moment Plane Touches Down Sideways In High Winds

Not a fan of flying? With landings like this, we can guess why.

Video released captures the moment when a twin-engine turboprop airliner tries to land in extremely poor weather conditions. The plane from the airline Flybe made a rocking descent onto the runway and the landing shows the turbo-propelled aircraft trying to land in very windy weather at Birmingham Airport in the U.K.

Flybe released a statement about the incident:

"On landing, the steering was temporarily affected by a strong cross wind gust from the right, as seen by the ‘crabbing’ action and sharp veer to the right of the aircraft. The crew quickly managed this accordingly."

This makes for one very perilous landing.
