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.
