One Of The Most Frightening And Horrifying Plane Landings You Will Ever Come Across

The plane landing you are about to see might just go down as the one of the most frightening landings ever. The 500-seat Emirates plane struggled to land at Dusseldorf airport.

The terrifying moment was captured and it looked pretty dangerous. A sudden gust of wind forced the plane to sway and tip from one side to the other for few seconds before the pilot manages to get it under control.

The video was recorded by plane spotter Martin Bogdan, who uploaded the footage to his YouTube channel.

Mr Bogan wrote: ‘I have filmed a few thousand crosswind landings at several airports in Europe within the past years, but this Airbus A380 crosswind landing was extremely hard and extraordinary.

‘At first it looked like a pretty normal crosswind approach but after touchdown the pilots tried to align with the runway which looked pretty incredible.

‘I have never seen such a tremendous reaction of an airplane after a touchdown.

‘You can see that the pilots tried to align with the runway by using the tail rudder and luckily it worked out.

‘This video shows the incredible skills of the pilots. Even after an unexpected wind gust after touchdown they managed to re-align with the runway. Incredible job.’

A spokesman for Emirates said: ‘Emirates flight EK 55 on 5 October 2017 landed safely in Dusseldorf under strong crosswind conditions.

‘At no point was the safety of the passengers and crew on board compromised.’

Northern Germany has been witnessing such strong winds in the past few days as storm Xavier passes across the country. Seven people have died and trains between Berlin, Hanover, Hamburg and Keil were also cancelled.
