This AirBerlin flight had a heart-stopping failed landing at Madeira Airport in September 2017. During the first week of September, the Madeira airport was whipped by strong winds coming from the north, and there were many cancellations and diverted flights on this particularly hellish day. Passengers on board these flights landing in Madeira were faced with a bumpy set down.

Crosswinds cause planes to make rough landings. This AirBerlin pilot struggled when approaching the runway and just when everyone thought that the plane is going to land, it went up in the air. The airplane had several failed landing attempts, but it eventually managed to land to safely.

Statistically speaking, air travel is the safest method of transportation, a bit of turbulence can put even the most seasoned traveler at the edge of their seat. Passengers are often disturbed because they don’t know what might happen and how the plane might react.

Turbulence is common, both close to the ground and in the air, because airplanes move on air currents and most of the time they are smooth. Air currents can get a bit violent at times, just like the ocean, causing the plane to sway in the sky, and scare the passengers.
