This video of a plane landing in high crosswinds at Bristol airport is just extraordinary stuff
If you’re not keen on flying and doing your best to conquer your fear, probably best not to watch this.
Just extraordinary stuff as a plane lands at Bristol airport in high crosswinds during Storm Callum.
Bristol Airport / TUI Airways Boeing 757-200

And here’s another view of the landing which went wildly viral.
And what people made of it online.
Beta few passengers were griping the armrests a bit tight on that one 😳😱👍👍

Passengers don't see anything unusual inside the aircraft, so unless it was unusually bumpy, which it may have been, they would not otherwise be unusually panicked .

I would wonder why I could see the start of the runway out of a side window though 😱🙂

This person appears to know what he’s talking about.
A perfectly executed crosswind landing in challenging gusty conditions. It was perfectly in the correct place and decrabbed after touchdown. 🙌🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

And this person.
It's called 'crabbing'. Looks crazy, but perfectly normal/standard with crosswind perpendicular to runway. pic.twitter.com/3Gx7uRqStN

Yeah, but still …
I bet the passengers gave the pilot big round of applause for that landing! Such skill.
