Ever Try To Land In A Hurricane?
A Lufthansa Airbus 320 was caught on video trying to land in a strong crosswind. The winds were the result of Hurricane Emma. The plane was carrying 137 passengers. The flight had taken off from Munich, and was landing at Hamburg, Germany. The Hurricane winds were gusting to 155 mph at times. The pilot did make a successful landing the second time around.
The pilot made a good decision to go-around and try another landing. I have landed in some strong crosswinds, but nothing this strong.
