Footage of a plane experiencing severe turbulence during a first attempt to land in Seattle amid heavy winds.

The video, captured on a Skywest flight from Portland to Seattle on November 13, shows passengers grabbing on to armrests and the backs of seats as turbulence rattles the plane.

According to reports, it took three times for the plane to land in the storm.

''It was bad, bad," the filmer later wrote online.

"We were up and down and sideways."

''We successfully landed on the third attempt at which the cabin erupted in claps and cheers,'' she continued.

''Once on the ground, the strong winds continued to hit the plane and we still felt the effects inside the cabin.''

''At the gate, the plane-side baggage service had to be pushed inside the covered walkway to the terminal as the grounds workers could not control the cart in the winds.''
