A set of runway stairs was blown into an airplane during <a href="https://newswire.storyful.com/storylines/*/stories/148540" target="_blank">stormy conditions</a> at Brisbane Airport, Australia, on November 13.

“The plane was shaking during a storm, like it was hitting turbulence,” the source of this footage said. “I saw the rain pelting on the window and started recording – I just happened to catch a set of stairs coming across the tarmac and hitting the plane.”

The storm around the airport was described by witnesses as “tornado-like,” according to the <a href="http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/storm-warning-for-southeast-queensland/news-story/821ddbc5845299b2e4efa205a79355ba" target="_blank">Courier Mail</a>. The storm also reportedly knocked out power for around 8,000 homes in the region.
