Planes in strong wind - level 3, A12
Planes had to land in extreme wind in Spain. Some pilots were successful, some weren’t.
As you can see in the video, the wind was so strong that even some big planes had big problems with landing. The situation was scary for both the pilots and passengers. The pilots had to do their best to get the planes to the ground.
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. Some of them managed it with difficulties. Four planes couldn’t do it and they had to land at another airport.
None of the flights were cancelled.
