A British Airways plane made news a few weeks ago after one of its doors was pulled off just after passengers left at Cape Town international airport.
Strong winds once again hampered the British jets’ ability to make a safe and secure landing, indicating that this isn’t the greatest moment for them.
A terrifying video of the captain battling to safely land the plane due to unusually strong winds has been uploaded online.
British Airways plane struggles against strong winds in scary clip
Once you’ve gone on one or two airplane flights, it pretty much starts to feel normal and not at all scary as it is the first time.
However, one always has a little fear in the back of their minds when they consider all of the things that can go wrong while one is thousands of kilometers above the ground.
A short video clip of a British Airways plane struggling to make a safe landing because of strong winds was just shared online and let’s just say, old fears suddenly became new for many people.
The incident reportedly took place at Heathrow Airport in London.
The clip was shared on Twitter by @BigJetTVLIVE and captioned:
“A321 TOGA and Tail Strike! A full-on Touch and go, with a tail strike! Watch for the paint dust after contact and watch the empennage shaking as it drags. The pilot deserves a medal! BA training could use this in a scenario – happy to send the footage chaps.”
Here’s what the net thinks!
“Oh man, imagine being a passenger on the left side! Ya know, there’s a good chance someone on the aircraft took a video!”
“Genuine question, just how did that happen? Bad weather? Human error? Bloody hell that looks scary…!”
