Emirates Flight EK 55 battled strong winds to make an almost impossible landing on Thursday in Düsseldorf and the whole thing was caught on camera.
The A380 plane was approaching the German airport when rough winds forced a tricky landing, fortunately a skilled pilot managed to pull off a safe landing. A plane spotter nearby who filmed the incident remarked “I have never seen such a tremendous reaction of an airplane after a touchdown”.
The video was posted to YouTube on October 5 and has already racked up over 4 million views.

I have filmed lots of crosswind landings within the past four years but this was the first time I was able to film an A380 crosswind Landing.
All crosswind Landings are amazing but seeing an A380 fighting against the wind was something special.
In addition to that the runway was very wet and the A380 touched down a little late.
Emirates started using the A380 on the Düsseldorf – Dubai service four months ago. It replaced the Boeing 777-300.
