Dramatic video shows how the landing gear of a Flybe aircraft collapses during touchdown at Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, Netherlands, on February 23. Flight BE1284 was arriving from Edinburgh when it came down heavy on the runway during strong winds. This video captures the plane touching down hard on its right side, resulting in a collapse of the gear as it landed. Photographer Dennis Janssen was at the airport to shoot footage of planes that land during the adverse weather when he captured this incident by chance.

Incidences like this can be really scary, especially for the people inside the plane. Good thing everyone on the plane was alright as this could have been pretty disastrous. It was a pure luck that the rough landing was caught on camera as this footage would be appropriate for future investigation! Flying can be scary but it is still a lot safer than driving!

Being a pilot must be a pretty fun job despite the stress such as this one. A lot of people dream of becoming pilots but their dreams rarely come true because their lives go in a totally opposite direction. They could always purchase some awesome r-c planes from Amazon to satisfy their aviation urges!

Engine shutdowns are fairly routine, and all twin-engined planes are designed to keep flying safely even if one engine fails at the worst possible time, on take off. Elsewhere, more than 100 flights have been cancelled or diverted due to high winds.

The main international airport in the Netherlands, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is the third busiest airport in Europe in terms of passenger volume. That says a lot, since the airport’s location means the runways get beaten up by heavy crosswinds year round.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is known to be battered by difficult crosswinds, making airplane pilots make a second, even a third attempt at landing their aircrafts. The strong gushes of wind make landing sequences difficult, causing the airplanes to sway above the tarmac, some even resolving to some extreme measures to bring those passengers safely on land.

An Airbus A350 was unable to land at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport on Wednesday, September 13, 2017, due to heavy crosswinds and stormy conditions. The flight had to swiftly make a “go around” on approach to landing. Clearly the plane was being battered by the wind and the decision was made to try again. Thankfully, the plane landed safely on its second attempt.

An Emirates Airbus A380 made a dramatic landing at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport on November 20, again amid strong crosswinds. The airplane’s landing came on a day other flights had to make a “touch and go-around” at the airport. The A380 can be seen clearly buffeted by the winds as it approached the ground, and even after touching down, its wings waved up and down.

Another dramatic video shows the landing gear of a Flybe aircraft collapse during touchdown at Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam, Netherlands, on February 23. Flight BE1284 was arriving from Edinburgh when it came down heavy on the runway during strong winds. This video captures the plane touching down hard on its right side, resulting in the landing gear collapsing as it landed.

      better than the person i know that took out street lights at the airport taxing.. then another time he retracted the landing gear while in holding.. once the right came up it was too late to reverse it, crush the right side belly.. which was great, it provided me with extra income in repairing it... $80,000.00 in labor, parts and paint..
