Video: Watch a Boeing 777 battle violent winds

Watch a Boeing 777 try to land at England’s Birmingham Airport almost sideways and fail due to high winds.

The pilot took a couple of goes before opting to land at another airport.

Jets can land in some pretty extreme conditions – but these winds were simply too strong for the plane to safely land.

It must have been a bit nerve wracking for those in window seats who could see the runway in front of them as they were about to touchdown!

Haha that is cool. They need to take a leaf out of Wellington’s airport … shut it down when the wind ramps up
