This Plane Was Being Tossed About In Super Strong Winds…This Pilot Is AMAZING! OMG!
What would you have done if you were on this plane and the winds started to toss is back and forth, AND your pilot decided to land anyway? I’ll be honest, I probably would have cried. If you’ve ever experienced turbulence, it can be a very frightening thing! Knowing that the only thing between you and the ground is a little bit of wind can be very daunting for some people (including me!) but for this pilot, he knew that he could do it!
This incredible event happened at the Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The plane had only 30 minutes left of fuel, and who knew when the storm would let up? Instead of risking being stuck in the air when the fuel gave out, this pilot decided that he could overcome the high winds and still land this plane (and all of its passengers) safely.
Because of the high winds, the wings of the plane keep trying to “take off” and keep the plane afloat in the sky. The pilot does some amazing maneuvering to keep it as steady as possible, and when those wheels bounce and finally stick the landing, I can imagine that everyone let out a relieved sigh. Perhaps there was applause? Thankfully, this flight had a very skilled captain! This video was intense!
