Take a look at the windy challenge facing the pilot who was landing a TUIfly plane at an airport in Portugal. YouTube user Flávio Silva captured the entire thing on video.

    This is not worty of an article. Pilots at numerous key airports with wind issues land on a daily basis. Publishing this only adds fear to the almost perfect flying statistics each year. Pick a less dramatic title and save everyone from the un warranted fear mongering. Walking down the street in any major city is more dangerous.

      this isn’t a news thread, this part of Fox 6’s site shows interesting web videos. I do agree the title should have been different though.
