Video: Breathtaking Emirates A380 landing in gale, storm goes viral
Emirates pilots prove again why they are among the best in the world.
Emirates Airbus A380 faced fierce crosswinds while it approached the runway at Manchester Airport but made an impressive landing. A nail-biting video captured the moment the largest passenger plane rocked side to side due to strong winds caused by Storm Atiyah.
Manchester Evening News reported the pilot of the Emirates plane manoeuvred the aircraft carefully and managed to make a safe touch down on the tarmac, according to Mirror.co.uk. The challenging landing was posted by AviationUpClose on their YouTube channel on Tuesday as Storm Atiyah battered the airport with 43mph winds.
The storm wreaked havoc across large parts of the UK and Ireland as large tracts of County Kerry were plunged into darkness following a massive fault, which left 10,000 homes without power.
