This dramatic video shows passenger plane battling fierce crosswinds on landing and takeoff. It was one very windy day at Stockholm Arlanda airport on December 28, 2016 in Sweden. There was a gust right before touchdown that threw the camera off a little bit.
This video shows heavy crosswind landings and takeoff of a boeing airplane. Severe crosswinds often cause difficulties for pilots, especially during takeoff and landing. It is spectacular and praiseworthy to see these pilots fight with wind speeds of up to 60 knots.
The incredible footage was filmed at Stockholm Arlanda airport in Sweden and shows plane bouncing on the wind in severe weather conditions that usually cause delays and cancellations throughout Europe.
This incoming aircraft was struggling to maintain a straight line, and then a plane is captured make a golden takeoff. To laymen like us, flying a plane may seem like a piece of cake, but despite of demanding serious skills and education, flying a plane also takes make factors in consideration.
When the weather conditions are bad, flights can be cancelled or diverted. However, those planes that do fly are required to circle for ‘a further bumpy hour’ as air traffic control tries to find space for them and informs about the conditions. Plane bouncing can often cause passengers to get ill and sick.
There is a tradition that after a rough landing, the pilot gets a full round of applause and people start seeing life in a new light.
