Watch This Airplane Lands SIDEWAYS in Heavy Winds

Strong winds of up to 40 knots due to Storm Callum caused this TUI Airways Boeing 757-200 aircraft to come in for a sideways landing at Bristol Airport, England.

From Mraviationguy, who filmed the plane's landing maneuvers:

Strong winds blowing directly across the runway at Bristol Airport on the 12th October 2018 due to Storm Callum caused this TUI Airways Boeing 757-200 aircraft to come in nearly sideways. Aircraft need to compensate for the crosswind otherwise they will be blown off course, they do this by pointing their nose into the direction the wind is coming from, demonstrated perfectly by this crew. It is always fascinating to watch planes landing in strong crosswinds; the power of mother nature vs the skill and professionalism of the brilliant airline pilots.
