Don’t watch this if you’re a nervous flier! Terrifying video shows a pilot struggling to land in strong winds at Birmingham airport…

 

This is the terrifying moment a passenger jet narrowly averts disaster after being buffeted by high winds as it comes into land at a UK airport.

Video footage shows the Boeing 767 swaying wildly in the air in crosswinds of up to 40mph.

But the pilot skilfully manages to keep control by appearing to bring the plane down at a steeper angle than the normal descent.

As a result, the jet bounces onto the tarmac, first with the right-hand set of landing gear and then onto the left, throwing up clouds of smoke.

The incident took place at Birmingham Airport.
