Comin’ in hot! Kudos to the pilots who safely landed this plane amid the turbulence that nearly takes out its landing gear entirely.
This video is not a young fledgling's first attempt at flight — it's actually a veteran pilot struggling to keep a Boeing 767 straight during a landing at the Birmingham Airport in the UK. Winds were gusting at 65 km/h as the jet touched down.
The plane, which seems to have trouble stabilizing itself as it approaches the runway, looks as if it might be in for a crash landing, when it miraculously lowers itself safely onto the ground — though the word "safely" is used loosely as it could have been so much worse.

The landing gear, however, is definitely in worse condition than the passengers, as one of the wheels looks as if it almost blew out completely.
You’ve got to hand it to the pilot, because it could not have been easy to land this giant aircraft safely in those conditions.
