Passengers on a Swiss A320 had a memorable flight on Sunday when their pilot decided to abort a dangerous landing at the last possible second.
In the clip, the airplane can be seen attempting to land at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport while battling a heavy crosswind. Although the plane coming in for a landing at a heavy angle may be concerning for some watchers, this is actually the typical technique and not as scary as it may look.
Regardless of how it looks from the ground, when a pilot ditches a landing it will surely come as a surprise to passengers, especially if the plane briefly makes contact with the ground such as in this case.
Thankfully, the plane made a successful landing 10 minutes later. on its second pass.
