As my house was being frozen in winter storms earlier this week there were some equally miserable travellers trying to land in Washington DC.
I am developing an addiction to these rather horrific landing videos and this is a good one! This Southwest Airlines flight was attempting to land at Reagan National Airport on Friday during record high winds.
The video shows the plane wobbling about in Storm Riley and then aborting the landing. Storm Riley, hit US soil last week, with a mix of rain, snow and strong winds.
