Video: Massive Emirates A380 Skids on Landing in Düsseldorf
Emirates flight 55 from Dubai to Düsseldorf ran into 20mph crosswinds on landing yesterday. This happened to an A380-the largest passenger jet in the world which can seat 500+ people. The touchdown initially looks perfect. Then the wind hits and the plane appears to lose control.
No one onboard the aircraft was injured, but it must’ve been scary to sit through that! Job well done to the pilots for correcting the plane.
