Intense Crosswinds Bash Plane Whilst Landing In This Adrenaline Pumping Video

A pilot flying a Dash8 Q400 got caught in a heavy wind storm that battered Europe on Thursday. With wind speeds reaching 68 mph, the pilot attempted to land at Düsseldorf Airport in Germany.

As the small prop plane comes in for the landing it can be seen getting tossed in seemingly every direction with the intense crosswinds. But when the runway becomes visible it’s clear just how intense the landing will be.

Thankfully, the pilot manages to set the plane down without incident, though they were forced to come in nearly sideways to stick the landing. While landing in crosswinds looks intense, it’s a common occurrence among professional pilots, though maybe not as extreme as the clip here.
