This is scary to watch never mind actually being on the plane.

An Emirates plane coming into land at Birmingham airport was forced to abort at the last second as high winds threatened to blow it off the runway.

It flew off but after a failed second attempt it had to be diverted to the less gusty Gatwick Airport.

Storms lashed the north of the country on Thursday afternoon with the worst coastal surge for 60 years predicted by forecasters.
