Pilot Pulls Off Airbus A380 Crosswind Landing As Ferocious Storm Hits Düsseldorf Airport

Landing a plane in a storm can be terrifying.

It becomes near impossible when you are in the cockpit of the world's biggest airliner - the Airbus A380 that weighs 577 tonnes, equivalent to 48 double decker buses.

However, one pilot managed to pull off a crosswind landing at the airport in Düsseldorf, Germany.


YouTuber Cargospotter, captured the terrible weather conditions the pilot was dealing with in a video posted on September 19.

The footage shows the airliner swaying as the pilot attempted to steer through strong crosswinds.


Thankfully, his skill came through as the plane and its passengers touched down safely.
