Last year, Doris, one of the strongest storms to hit the UK and Ireland created havoc with flights with some spectacular landings and take-offs in high winds.
Doris was dubbed a “weather bomb” due to its rapid intensification and packed winds of 105km/hr.
However, Capel Curig in Wales recorded wind gusts of 152 km/hr.
Flugsnug.com captured some dramatic footage of landings, aborted landings, and some spectacular take-offs at the UK’s Birmingham Airport.
The cameraman said that it was the “strongest gusting wind I have filmed in – up to 62 mph/54 knots.”
“Plenty of heavy wing flexing, furious flicking of control surfaces, and a near tail strike making a great opportunity to see in detail how planes and pilots handled the unusually difficult conditions.”
