This airplane came frighteningly close to disaster while attempting to land at Schiphol in Amsterdam recently. Strong winds made conditions difficult for the pilot, who seemed to misjudge his approach to the runway. At the last moment, the right edge of the plane tilts, with the right wheel touching the runway for less than a second before the pilot pulls up quickly. Luckily, the second attempt goes much more smoothly, and disaster is averted.
