Planes in strong wind - level 2, A12
Planes had to land in strong wind in Spain. Some pilots were successful, some pilot weren’t successful.
As you can see in the video, the wind was very strong and some big planes had big problems with landing. The situation was difficult for the pilots and passengers too. The pilots had to be very good if they wanted to land in such wind.
The speed of the wind was 65 kilometres per hour at the airport in Bilbao. The airport wasn’t closed and all planes could try to land. Many pilots were successful, but four planes couldn’t do it and they had to land at another airport.
None of the flights were cancelled.
