No matter how well you prepare for a flight, there is one thing even an organized traveler can’t control: Mother Nature. She will exact her wrath when she feels like it, and she won’t be reasoned with. A KLM pilot (flying an Embraer 190) pulls off an incredibly terrifying landing while touching down at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, Netherlands during an intense storm.

    Re "incredibly terrifying", "incredibly terrifying" to WHO? I wasn't particularly terrified, and I doubt anyone on the plane was either. This is just another landing with gusting crosswinds. And no, the weather is not particularly "stormy", just a little rainy with a light but gusting crosswind. I recommend changing your title to "KLM Pilot Executes Challenging Landing In Gusting Crosswind". That would be much more accurate and much less click-bait-y.

      But it got you to click on their link, and that was likely their plan!

    Landing at Dallas/Ft. Worth airport, our plane was hit with a wind-shear and the right wing nearly hit the ground. The pilot's quick reflexes corrected the plane for a safe landing. God bless him!
