Even if you're not exactly a world traveler, chances are you've flown enough to have experienced at least one bumpy plane landing that left you dangerously close to needing a change of pants. Passengers aboard a recent flight into Germany's Dusseldorf airport, however, endured a landing of nightmares, due to intense crosswinds that sent the massive airplane swerving across the runway.
A video by Cargospotter on YouTube (shown above) captured the terrifying moments when Emirates flight EK 55 from Dubai touched down on the runway amid the powerful gusts on October 5, according to a report by CNET. Everything appears to be mostly normal as the plane descends, but the trouble starts shortly after the wheels touch the pavement and the wind hits. Watch as the massive aircraft lurches for several long seconds before the pilots miraculously manage to straighten it out and safely land. Do not watch if you're already scared of flying.
