Mad Piloting Landing Skills through Extremely Windy Weather

28.04.2012


Extremely high winds in northern Spain tested the skills of pilots as they landed in extreme conditions that swayed planes and frightened passengers.

Video footage captured planes landing at Bilbao's Loiu Airport in sweeping winds that forced some of the pilots to abort the landing process. The Basque country registered winds of over 81 miles per hour (130 kilometers). The State Meteorological Agency said winds reached 40 miles per hour (65 kilometers) at Loiu Airport, the daily Diario Vasco reported. AENA, the airport authority said high winds had affected air travel resulting in four aircraft being re-routed to different airports. Bilbao's airport, however, remained open throughout the bad weather. There were no cancellations but the conditions forced pilots to use their skills to the utmost.

Great Piloting, that's why they make the big bucks!
