Has your plane ever suffered from storm force crosswinds as it landed? I have experienced a number of hairy landings which have frightened me and caused the entire cabin to break into applause when the pilot got the plane down safely. I have not (yet?) experienced a landing as bad as this!

This video shows a Eurowings Dash 8 landing at Dusseldorf Airport just over a week ago. This plane type is one that I have flown on many occasions because Flybe has a number of these planes in their fleet.

When I watched this video, I was amazed the pilot did not abort the landing and I cannot imagine the fear felt by the passengers inside the aircraft while it was bumping around.

Thankfully the plane landed safely, unlike last week’s Pegasus Airlines 737 flight which veered off a runway and down a cliff.
