Complicated landing in England - level 3
This footage shows the frightening moment an aeroplane was buffeted around by high winds, as it tried to land at Leeds Bradford Airport.
The plane can be seen swaying from side to side in the gale-force winds, as it approached the runway in West Yorkshire.
The skilful pilots managed to keep control and gradually bring it in safely to land in what is considered to be one of the most difficult airports to land at.
It approaches the runway at a visible angle with its wings tilted as it’s blown about in the high winds currently battering the country. The gale-force landings come, as 60-miles-per-hour winds (97 kilometres per hour) have struck the north of England today, causing a wave of travel problems.
Difficult words: footage (a video), buffet (to hit and move with a lot of force), sway (to move), gale-force (very strong wind), tilt (to move something to one side), batter (to hit something again and again), visible (obvious).
