YouTube user flugsnug shows us some of the more challenging and missed landings at BHX, Birmingham Airport in the United Kingdom due to heavy crosswinds. According to Wikipedia, this is the UK’s seventh busiest airport.
“Of the five ‘missed approaches’ shown, three diverted to other airports, two were ‘go arounds’ and landed successfully on second attempt,” the YouTube description explains.
If you’re in a hurry and can’t watch all 11 minutes of the clip, here are the highlights: 0:31, 1:34, 2:36, 4:19, 5:41, 7:14, 8:24, 8:58, 9:14, and 10:04.
As the YouTube description points out, “Note the frequent flexing of the planes’ wings in response to the turbulence.”
